The Stadspark in Groningen was donated to the residents in 1913 by Jan Evert Scholten. He envisioned it as a place where everyone could come for relaxation, exercise and fun. Hence the nickname 'backyard of Groningen'. To this day, the park is mainly used for this purpose, but the event industry has also found this beautiful place as a stage. A few times a year a huge stage is built on the trotting track where up to 75,000 visitors can enjoy the best music. In August 2021, the municipality decided to stop using the trotting track for sports and to use it completely for events. This allows major artists such as Greenday, Fallout Boy, Weezer and Guns n' Roses to make full use of this beautiful location.
Guns n' RosesThis American hard rock band is finally coming back to the Netherlands after 4 years. And after two great performances in the Goffertpark, in 2017 and 2018, it is now Stadspark Groningen's turn. There has been speculation for a while about a possible new album in 2022, but for now we have to make do with the latest hits 'Absurd' and 'Hard Skool'.
