Summer 2015 was epic under the tent

Kids are going back to school and the summer clothes are going back in the closet. Before you start planning for the fall, let’s look back on the epic summer we had under the tent.

We kicked the summer off with a busy June. We had the Wailers and Rusted Root, Joe Nichols, Lucinda Williams, the Irish Festival featuring Gaelic Storm, Steve Miller Band, Mary Chapin Carpenter and the Cape Symphony.

As the tent comes down in Hyannis and 2015 comes to an end, we are looking forward to ringing in 2016 with an exciting calendar filled with world-class entertainers, fun children’s shows and of course, our continued commitment to supporting local Cape Cod non-profit organizations. None of this would be possible without our fans who continue to support the Music Circus. 2016 club memberships are now on sale; don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy early ticket sales and promotions.
