Meadow Brook Music Festival

Meadow Brook Music Festival, located on the campus of Oakland University in Rochester, Mich. opened in 1964 on property originally owned by automotive industry pioneer John F. Dodge and donated by his widow Matilda Dodge Wilson.

In its first four seasons, Meadow Brook was the exclusive summer residence of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra until the festival’s schedule was broadened in 1968 to include ballet. By the early 1970s rock and pop concerts were added to venue’s summer line-up.

Palace Sports & Entertainment (PS&E) assumed management, marketing and booking of the 7,700-capacity Meadow Brook amphitheater in 1994 after reaching a long-term operational and management agreement with Oakland University.

Since then, PS&E has invested millions in improvements to Meadow Brook’s existing buildings and its stage, adding more pavilion seats, building a new concessions facility, revamping its sound system and adding an electronic marquee for the venue on campus.

Meadow Brook’s traditional and eclectic programming has flourished over the years. Today, contemporary and rock concerts and family events are hallmarks of the venue’s unique ambiance for all generations.
