Although the Levitt AMP Music Series that was supposed to be taking place once again this summer out on the Y-block here downtown has been post-poned until 2021, the Levitt AMP site remains active and the foundation has also been active hosting online concerts. Springfield’s very own group, The Deep Hollow was featured as part of the online series late last month, and along with that the Levitt AMP site blog had a nice write-up spotlighting Springfield. You can check that all out right here. From the post:
Nearly 8,000 people attended the inaugural Levitt AMP Springfield Music Series last summer, and lawn surveys conducted by volunteers show an enthusiastic response from the community. Over 80 percent of respondents said that they would like to see a permanent concert venue in the space, and would regularly attend concerts if a permanent band shell was constructed. Other suggestions from the community include a dog park, tennis courts, food truck plaza, and more. “No one was using this block before Levitt AMP,” says (Lisa) Stott, “and now people see the possibilities.”
