Darien Lake Performing Arts Center, also known as the PAC, is the largest outdoor music venue in upstate New York with a seating capacity of 21,600. The venue opened in the 1990s as a replacement for the Lakeside Amphitheater concert, and has since drawn in hundreds of thousands of music lovers from all over the country and Canada. Although the PAC is not as large as some other music venues in the state, it exudes a cozy and laid-back atmosphere, making it a great place to interact with fellow music lovers.

During the summer concert season, the PAC features shows every weekend, as well as mid-week concerts.
