A major annual music festival in West Michigan will have a new home in 2018. WBCT-FM’s (Grand Rapids) annual “Birthday Bash” country music event is relocating to the Fifth Third Ballpark in Grand Rapids. For the last seven years, the festival has been held at U.S. 131 Motorsports Park near Martin in Allegan County.
“After evaluating the changing concert landscape and reviewing facilities and infrastructure, B-93.7 has decided to move its Birthday Bash celebration to the Fifth Third Ballpark,” said iHeartRadio Media Market President Tim Feagan, in a released statement. “The new facility for the Birthday Bash will provide better sightlines, concession choices, facilities, and seating for all attendees.”
The 2018 event will be held June 2. The concert lineup will be announced at a later date.
