Fairgrounds Takeover

For the past eight years, Sean Gaiser has been the Director of Booking and Event Production at D.C. Fairgrounds. He is responsible for the live concerts before and after every Nationals home game as well as a variety of other festivals when the Nats are on the road. Every so often, the perfect concert opportunity presents itself for Sean to bring GIGS down to D.C.’s largest outdoor venue and get his students rocking out on that huge stage.

T. Swift Takeover – July 2014
On July 13 and 14, GIGS threw an official pre-show party for both nights of Taylor Swift’s sold out 1989 World Tour shows at Nationals Park. Backed by a band of GIGS teachers, students took the stage and rocked out to Top 40 pop songs before nearly 3,000 eager Taylor Swift fans.
