Hey everyone. I have a few questions for any New Brunswick residents here.

I'm going to the Bruce Springsteen concert at Magnetic Hill this summer. I heard that Magnetic Hill is essentially a massive open field in the middle of nowhere.

Magnetic Hill Concert Site - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

How many square kilometres does the Magnetic Hill concert area take up?

I tried Googling this information, but couldn't come up with anything.

Where can I find this information? Anyone have any idea?

I'm just curious.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks everybody!

I've been to one concert there - the place is huge - no idea how big. I've heard it's around 100 acres, but can't find the actual concrete evidence. The site was originally set up to welcome the pope. It's just on the outskirts of Moncton.

The concert I went to had an attendance of 60,000 people but it didn't feel crowded. They have the system quite organised now for toilets, bar, entry, etc. They run bus shuttles from other locations (you can't take your car there unless you are a resident) although there are some businesses and private individuals that offer camping, parking, and one place offers a picnic lunch and parking for a fee. DM me if you want that info.

Be forewarned: I don't think they have EVER had a concert yet when it wasn't pi$$ing down rain. Bizaare but true. We brought big black garbage bags to set on the ground and sit on (standing for four hours can get very tiring and when we went they wouldn't allow portable chairs (or umbrellas - so bring rain gear. ) and consider rubber boots or wear sandals and plan on braving the muck. But who knows, this could be the year it doesn't rain!

Some photos of the U2 concert here: http://seaandbescene.com/2011/08/pho...-magnetic-hill - apparently the rain stoppped eventually, but it was mucky. The concert I went to was a mud bath. There are some stand seating, but higher priced and the stands
