Endicott, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Zac Brown Band fans are counting down the minutes until the country musicians will take the stage Friday night.

The concert will start around 8:30 p.m. and crowds are expected to top 26,000 people.

For those who still need a ticket, booklets are the only available option left. They are $90 and include a ticket to the show plus passes for Friday through Sunday.

The stage is being set up along the 18th hole. The Zac Brown Band has one of the most elaborate set-ups that crews have ever seen at the Dick's Sporting Goods Open Concerts.

"The light show is going to be amazing," said audio engineer Dave Brassard. "There's going to be a huge video wall, it's going to be a really outstanding show."

There are open lots and street parking along Main Street in Endicott, but once they fill up, drivers will be directed to the old IBM/Glendale facility. That lot can hold up to two thousand cars and shuttles will take people to the golf course entrance.

It's recommended to get off Route 17 at the Apalachin exit to avoid Main Street traffic.

"Once the festival gets out we're going to actually shut down these roads here so the buses that bring people in can bring people back and forth," said Dave Pessagno, event coordinator.

Shutting down roads after the concert is a new addition this year. Pessagno said they are going off feedback from concert attendees last year who got stuck in traffic after the concert.
