Premier Concerts / Manic Presents Announce Socially Distanced Outdoor Concert Series

Necessity is the mother of invention, at Premier Concerts / Manic Presents, live music is vital. The promoter, along with NHCPA South Farms, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of New Haven Center for Performing Arts Inc., are excited to expand into Litchfield County and have joined together with South Farms to create Twilight Concerts (and Comedy) On The Farm – two new series of socially distanced outdoor shows.

The venue’s initial set of shows are August 22nd, with Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Grace Potter. Comedian Nikki Glaser (Netflix’s Bangin, Comedy Central’s Not Safe with Nikki Glaser) kicks off the Litchfield County venues’ comedy series on August 30th with her hilariously honest stand-up. The 2 shows go on sale this Friday, August 7th at 10AM. More shows to be announced.

Located at South Farms (Morris, CT), shows will take place on over 10 acres of manicured farmland. The venue boasts a beautifully structured grid layout, adhering to public health guidelines while still maintaining the intimacy of live concerts. The vast spacing and outdoor conditions (open air) help reduce potential transmission and encourage social distancing.

Concertgoers purchase an 8’x8’ Grid which is surrounded by an additional Social Distance Grid along with aisle spacing. Each Grid is designed for two guests and is offset to maximize stage view. Grids cannot be merged and it is required to watch the performance from your designated area. Guests are welcome to bring lawn chairs and blankets for comfortable seating and enjoying the farm field. Outside food and beverages are prohibited. Food trucks and a full bar will be available on site.

Safety is the top priority. Each show will comply with the most current health and safety standards per state regulations and local jurisdictions in order to protect guests, artists, crew and staff. Face masks are mandatory when entering, exiting, and traveling throughout the venue to restrooms or concession areas. Masks are not required while in Guest Grid, however in accordance with Executive Order No. 7NNN: “Effective immediately, any person in a public place in Connecticut, whether indoors or outdoors, who does not maintain a safe social distance of approximately six feet from every other person shall cover their mouth and nose with a mask or cloth face-covering.” Hand sanitizing stations will be dispersed throughout the venue. High-touch areas such as door handles, counter surfaces will be regularly and consistently disinfected throughout the show. Restrooms will be cleaned and restocked regularly throughout the show. Everyone entering the venue, including guests, artists, crew and staff will be health checked including a temperature check and short questionnaire. Masks and gloves will be available upon request. Per State order the venue has a reduced capacity of 25% – making tickets extremely limited.

Shows are all ages unless noted otherwise.
Shows are rain or shine.
