Forest Hills FAQ
GENERAL INFO & FAQS
Forest Hills Stadium in Queens is a New York gem in the middle of a renaissance. During its first heydey in the 1960s and 70s, the stadium hosted The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Barbra Streisand, and Simon and Garfunkel. Today, icons such as Nathaniel Rateliff, Alt-J, and Jamiroquai are back on stage.
The Stadium is located centrally in Forest Hills, a short distance from frequent service by several rail lines. Local dining and bars color the streets that lead to the stadium and light the night for celebration to continue after each show. The revivification of the Forest Hills Stadium is a collaboration with the West Side Tennis Club and members of the local Forest Hills Community. The stadium operators are proud of their long term vision to bring Forest Hills Stadium to its rightful position in the upper echelon of New York and American musical experience. "There is nothing like the stadium anywhere else in the city. Recently refurbished, with new seating, amenities and an impressive, state-of-the-art stage, the Forest Hills Stadium is redefining the outdoor concert experience. Even though the concerts are held in a stadium, Forest Hills is so much more intimate and welcoming." - QNS
