Since 1993, Darien Lake Amphitheater has been bringing the biggest stars to Western New York.  Over its history, well over 400 concerts have played its stage and in its 25th season, the lineup is proving to be one of its best yet.   The ceremonial season kicks off next Wednesday, May 24th with Future and special guests Migos, Torey Lanez,  ASAP Ferg and Zoey Dollaz.
Not only does the venue have a great lineup to celebrate its 25th season but LiveNation is also rolling out some upgrades and special offers to make this concert season one to remember.

Great new things to enhance the concert experience at Darien Lake Amphitheater for its 25th season include:
