Kick those winter blues away with this first sweet, sweet taste of summer. After celebrating an incredible 50th Anniversary season in 2021, Wolf Trap is starting off the next 50 years with a jam-packed summer season lineup at the famed Filene Center – their first full season since 2019 due to the pandemic.

There are genre-spanning, multi-night performances on deck from superstars like Bonnie Raitt and Sting; films-in-concert featuring Star Wars and Harry Potter; modern rock favorites like The Black Crowes and Goo Goo Dolls; plus, Broadway, opera, and family-friendly shows all coming your way in the summer of 2022.

In addition, the Filene Center will be sporting some upgraded amenities, like a brand-new orchestra seating configuration that adds center and cross-walk aisles!

Here’s a sampling of what’s to come this summer at America’s only National Park for the Performing Arts (learn about its unique history here). Tickets go on sale February 19 at 10 am. Plus, stay tuned in the coming months for even more show announcements.
