Concert organizers say 5 of this years concerts brought in 10 thousand people to the show. For the city of Bangor, bigger the crowds, the bigger it's take too on the concerts. City Manager Cathy Conlow says the city made nearly one hundred ten thousand in revenues and that's total profit, afer all expenses are factored in.

Conlow says,"they pay for their costs so when we talk about that 110 thousand dollars we received that's money straight into the general fund thats not including reimbursements for police they pay up front all the costs that the city puts into it."

Waterfront concerts Alex Gray says they are working hard to maintain a good concert experience for concert gooers with the moving of the stage.

It will be moved to an area behind the Tim Hortons on Main Street. City leaders say they are doing testing for sound and noise to minimize the impacts with the new placement of the stage.
