AEG Presents, the concert promoter behind tentpole festivals and multi-day music events such as Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, British Summer Time at Hyde Park, Stagecoach, Hangout Festival, Electric Forest and Firefly, has just announced that it has secured exclusive booking rights to Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica. Since 2018, AEG Presents has also booked and managed the Agora, and the arrangement with Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica will further increase its presence in the Cleveland market.

The agreement will take effect beginning with the spring 2022 season.



Since opening its doors in 1987, Jacobs Pavilion, which currently has an operating and booking agreement with AEG Presents rival Live Nation, has played host to acts such as the Ramones, Soundgarden, Ringo Starr, Britney Spears, Jack White, Green Day, Outkast, Nine Inch Nails, Mariah Carey, Twenty One Pilots, Travis Scott, John Legend and Lorde.

“The partnership provides support to help Jacobs Pavilion stay true to its established culture while continuing to drive growth and innovation that will expand the venue’s presence in the market,” reads a press release about the agreement.



AEG Presents will also work to restore and renovate the venue. In addition, Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica has signed an exclusive ticketing agreement with AXS that begins with the spring 2022 season.

“The Midwest has always been synonymous with an incredible live music scene, and Jacobs Pavilion is an important part of it,” says Rick Mueller, President of AEG Presents North America, in a statement. “We’re thrilled to be able to expand our presence in one of America’s great music cities, while also working with Jacobs Entertainment to bring an even greater experience for fans and artists.”

Patrick McKinley, Regional Vice President of Jacobs Entertainment, says that he's excited to welcome AEG Presents to Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica.

"[I] look forward to working with them over the next decade to enhance and expand the concert experience for Northeast Ohio’s many live music fans.”
