  BOSTON, MA – The Bowery Presents’ new seasonal outdoor general admission concert venue, The Stage at Suffolk Downs, announces the first events at their new venue. Re:SET, a fresh take on the multi-artist outdoor concert, is coming to The Stage at Suffolk Downs on June 16, 17 and 18 2023, featuring headliners Steve Lacy, LCD Soundsystem and boygenius. The Stage at Suffolk Downs is located at the legendary East Boston racetrack at 525 William F McClellan Highway and is able to host up to 8,500 concert goers. Visit www.ReSetConcertSeries.com for more information.

  The innovative concert series by The Bowery Presents creates a unique, localized experience for fans, with each headliner curating the lineup for their respective day. Steve Lacy will keep a focus on genre-bending artists with James Blake, Toro y Moi, and Fousheé. Traveling with LCD Soundsystem are electronic artist and one-third of The xx, Jamie xx, explosive UK rock band IDLES, and experimental multi-instrumentalist L’Rain, and more.

  boygenius will be bringing along indie standouts Clairo, Dijon, and Bartees Strange. Re:SET was conceived as an artist and fan friendly alternative to the standard summer concert experience.

  Taking place over four weekends in the month of June, each weekend will see three cities in the same region hosting, with each Re:SET headliner playing each city on consecutive days (see below for detailed information).

  The concept provides artists a respite from the cookie-cutter summer itinerary of sheds and amphitheaters, while fans get a leisurely day that features full sets from every artist, on one stage with no conflicts.

  The weekend will also feature food and drinks from local restaurants, bars, and breweries that reflect the

character and community of Boston. Visit www.ReSetConcertSeries.com for more information.

Presale Registration Begins: Tuesday 1/31 @ 11am ET

Artist Presale: Tues. 2/7 @ 10am – Thurs. 2/9 @ 10pm ET

Local Presale: Thurs. 2/9 @ 10am-10pm ET

  The Stage at Suffolk Downs is not the track’s first foray into live music: The Beatles were the first band to perform there, playing to 25,000 screaming fans in 1966. Since then, legendary artists such as The Jackson 5, Radiohead and Bjork have also performed. With The Stage at Suffolk Downs, The Bowery Presents and The HYM Investment Group, LLC, the developer behind the redevelopment, plan to honor the site’s musical legacy, while reinvigorating the space to bring an open-air summer concert experience to all.

  The opening of The Stage at Suffolk Downs expands The Bowery Presents’ owned and operated venues to three within the Boston area, joining the 3,500 capacity Roadrunner (which opened in Brighton in March 2022) and 525 capacity The Sinclair in Cambridge, alongside the Royale (exclusively booked by The Bowery Presents with 1,200 capacity), and the company’s hundreds of annual concert bookings in theaters and arenas in the region. The Bowery Presents is the leading concert promotion and venue management company in the Northeast with venues in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and Maine.

Re:SET is partnering with digital marketing platform Propeller on a philanthropic initiative taking place on each site. Propeller will work with local charities, as well as a national sustainability partner, on a flyaway promotion to send a lucky fan to any Re:SET date, travel and hotel included.
