On May 12 and 13, 2023, Pitbull came to Cary, NC at the Koka Booth Amphitheatre.
The doors at the concert opened at 6:30 pm and ran until about 10:30 pm.
Music duo Neon Union opened for Pitbull, but it was clear that they were not who attendees were there to see. “There was an opener but I wasn’t paying attention so I’m not sure who it was,” said Sydney Irby, senior.
The environment of the concert was what made it fun for the attendees. “The atmosphere was so lively. There were all different ages and everyone was jumping and all packed together,” said Irby.
“I usually go to country concerts so it was much different than that, from the music to the crowd — there were people from all ages there too,” said Kendall Priest, junior.
The venue, Koka Booth Amphitheatre, was also relatively small, only accommodating about 7,000 people. For some the small venue makes it seem homey and intimate. Others felt it was a little too small and crammed.
“I couldn’t see as much because it was a smaller venue [than last year’s concert], which wasn’t amazing,” said Maddy Iadanza.
Those who attended seemed to have a really fun time, and the event went off without a hitch. “It was a super fun experience, and I’m glad I went again because I had a lot of fun last year,” said Iadanza.
“I will definitely be going to another concert,” said Irby.
