Posted in: In The News on Thursday, July 13, 2017

"Lets get this party started Atlantic City," is what three-time Grammy award winner Pink exclaimed Wednesday night to a packed beach. The artist opened with her 2001 breakthrough single "Get This Party Started." Her drummers drum set sat on a gigantic artificial pin cushion and strobe lights went off as the artist broke into her 2006 single "Who Knew" before going back to the 2001 song "Just Like A Pill." The party was just beginning for a crowd that had been waiting all day for the singer to grace the stage. Pink opened the Atlantic City Beachfest concert series Wednesday night to an estimated crowd of more than 40,000 fans. Fans, who sat side-by-side on chairs and towels, got to their feet as Pink took the stage at 8:45 p.m. Wednesday; Opening act DJ went on at 6 p.m. followed by Dreamcar at 7:20 p.m.

There were construction workers moving all around Atlantic City's beach on Tuesday afternoon, just a day before three-time Grammy award winner Pink takes the stage to kick off the first Atlantic City BeachFest concert of the season. A total of 250 workers have been constructing the stage, which was finally set up alongside The Playground shops by Tuesday afternoon. Concert doors open tomorrow at 5 p.m., with local DJ Dee Jay performing a set at 6p.m., opening act Dreamcar following around 7p.m. and Pink taking the stage around 8:25p.m., according to Live Nation. On the boardwalk side of the beach, tents were constructed and mini stages built for bar patrons and potential vendors as the city geared up for the start of the Atlantic City BeachFest Concert Series in two days. The shows are part of a three-year, $6 million agreement with the CRDA that requires Live Nation to bring at least six beach concerts or events that attract 30,000 attendees or more to Atlantic City during this summer and next summer.
