Acoustica: Moncton’s FREE outdoor summer concert series!


June 22, 2017

MONCTON - The City of Moncton’s Acoustica summer concert series returns this year with another exciting lineup of free outdoor shows. Presented by UNI, the shows will be held twice weekly, from July 4 to August 22. The series will feature a great mix of local favourites and new up-and-coming artists from our region.
