One of the concert series many in Western New York look forward to the most every summer is the Rockin' the Downs at Batavia Downs.

However, people looking to attend this year were wondering what they would have to do in order to be allowed entry, and what restrictions or guidelines would be in place? On Thursday, Batavia Down released that information.

According to WIVB, Batavia Downs will not be requiring a negative COVID-19 test to attend the shows.

All pairs of seats will be six feet apart from each other, and those fully vaccinated will not have to wear a mask; but those who are not vaccinated, including minors, are highly encouraged to wear a mask when indoors. Masks can be taken off once outside.

What concerts will be happening at Batavia Downs? Here are some of the shows you can see, courtesy of WKBW. Rock music fans will be very happy!

June 18: Vince Neil
June 25: Steve Augeri (formerly of Journey)
July 2: Molly Hatchet
July 9: Don Felder (formerly of The Eagles)
July 16: Tommy James & The Shondells

Some of the shows for August include Queensrÿche on August 13th and Puddle of Mudd on August 20th!

Batavia Downs is right off the 90, too. It's about a 45-minute drive from the City of Buffalo, and I'm betting many music fans will be taking the short trip down the Thruway to watch some of these great shows this summer.
