Summer is around the corner, and Budweiser Stage, one of North America’s premier entertainment destinations, is gearing up for a record-breaking year! The 2023 season kicks off on May 23rd with Janet Jackson and Ludacris, followed by approximately 70 shows and over 20 new headlining acts playing the amphitheatre this year. There truly is something for everyone!

Budweiser Stage will have a fresh look this summer, as bars have been overhauled to reflect the full suite of beverage offerings. Here’s a nice overview of all the new features:

  • Return of the Corona Oasis area – featuring pre-show and post-show programming
  • KFC is now available
  • New non-alcoholic beverage offerings, including Well Juicery and Corona Sunbrew 0.0

Additionally, sustainability continues to remain a priority for Budweiser Stage as they look to reduce their environmental impact. New areas of focus include: waste diversion, elimination of single-use plastics and energy consumption.

Flow Water is the new water provider – an important move towards the goal of eliminating single-use plastics

With consumer demand for choice continually evolving, this concert season, fans of legal drinking age at Budweiser Stage will have more beverage options than ever before. New offerings include innovations like Cutwater canned cocktails and NÜTRL JUIC’d.
