The HFStival, an annual rock music festival organized by radio station WHFS-FM (99.1), will be held at the Ravens' downtown PSINet Stadium on May 29.
The concert was held at RFK Stadium in Washington last year. But the Ravens, acting as stadium managers, outbid RFK and the new Jack Kent Cooke Stadium in Landover for the multi-band show, said David Cope, Ravens vice president of sales and marketing.
It will be the first concert held inside the stadium, which opened last summer. It has a removable bank of seats over a concrete pad in one end zone to accommodate concerts.
"This will put the stadium on the map as an outdoor concert venue," Cope said.
Under the Ravens' contract with the Maryland Stadium Authority, the state will keep half the profits made on the event after the team deducts a management fee.
