Following committee passage by a 10-0 vote, the full City Council Monday night is expected to approve a contract for the Sound on The Sound music festival proposed for Seaside Park next September, a multi-day event anticipated to attract roughly 35,000 concert-goers per day for high profile rock and R&B artists.
The music festival contract calls for the organizers to cover all associated public safety and clean-up costs with the city guaranteed $100,000 but the take is projected to be more than double that based on receiving five percent of gross ticket sales.
The music festival is a joint venture of Howard Saffan, developer of the Hartford Healthcare Amphitheater, concert promoter Live Nation and organizers of the annual Governor’s Ball in New York.
