Country rock band to perform

Flagler Auditorium is spearheading a movement to return the arts to Flagler County through a spectacular drive-in, outdoor concert, featuring Hayfire, one of Florida’s most popular bands.

The high-energy ensemble will appear on a special stage with 58state-of-the-art sound and light on campus at Flagler Palm Coast High School, 5500 S.R. 100, Palm Coast.

Country, rock band Hayfire, formed a decade ago, comprises six outstanding instrumentalists and singers, along with vocalist Megan Stuart, one of country music’s most quintessential artists.

“In partnership with The Flagler Playhouse and The City Repertory Theater, with this event, organizers are signaling a reopening of the performing arts to Flagler County under Florida health guidelines,” said auditorium director Amelia Fulmer.

Returning the arts

“Hayfire is wildly popular, and we hope Flagler will turn out in a big way to enjoy their music and celebrate.”

“Hayfire brings the party with a healthy dose of country and rock’n’roll. They light the stage on fire at every performance,” writes one reviewer.

The band is one of Florida’s most popular, attracting standing-only audiences wherever they perform.

Tickets are $20 each, and available for purchase in advance at, beginning July 3. Only one ticket is required per vehicle, and concertgoers are asked to bring their own chairs.

Social distancing rules

Cars will be welcomed in the parking lot’s specially marked spaces, beginning 5 p.m., Sept. 13. The concert begins 6 p.m.

Masks and temperature checks are required for all automobile drivers and passengers upon entering the venue.

Concertgoers are encouraged to bring their own chairs to use outside their cars and stay socially distant between groups.

Food and non-alcoholic beverages will be available on site; social distancing and masks will be required at the point-of-purchase.

In concert with the Flagler County school system, the auditorium operates with state-of-the-art technology and design. The auditorium presents quality, live performances in exciting month-long seasons – from Broadway to family theater, big band to high-profile, celebrity entertainment.
