So last night at the park the music was horrible.....I dont need to go to BGW to listen to a song that sings about "Double Ds". It truely felt like a local carnival last night with so many diffrent songs playing around the park. Another issue last night was the volume level. We ate at Marco Polos and mid song on every song it sounded like someone would trn the volume way up then a minute or so later way back down. We noticed this in germany as well.

While I don't mind some pop, especially in the summer as it kinda works for the theme, it should be appropriate and upbeat. I honestly don't think many people would be upset if the classic hamlet music played all day and night.

As I recall from long ago, they played classic hamlet music all day and night for a few decades. It was great.

Of course, they also stayed open until 10pm on midsummer weekdays and midnight on weekends. That could come back too, if I'm making a wish list...

BGW has always allowed visiting acts to sell their own Merchandise. This hasn't changed.

Also just because you think something is crap music doesn't mean that others do. I don't particularly care for it but it's the music that is most popular today. It's also only played in the evening during Summer Nights. It's been that way since the beginning of Summer Nights. Does anyone complain that they change the music for Christmas Town or HOS to better fit the event's theme? No they complain that they don't like a particular song BGW picked and they would prefer this song. But I've never heard people complain that the music is completely different.

Personally I agree with @The Quist. I'm not thrilled by some of the songs they chose and wish they would have picked some different songs but the music they are playing ties into the summer nights theme.

Ok, guess I should clarify. When I say crap music I mean for the theming of the park. What they are playing I probably wouldnt mind at water country and is what you hear at the beach and local radio stations. I just dont expect to hear about Double Ds when walking past Pompeii. And as far a merch for artists. I remember seeing t shirts and such sold at the concerts right by the skyride. But to have the tent right at the park entrance by the Globe was to me out of place. We honestly thought it was something the park was doing, offering or giving away until we got close and saw the paper sign with $20 on it next to a stack of CDs. I also dont remember it being at the volume that it is now. I know they have added a ton of speakers around the park and the bass at the Festhouse was thumpin.

Well if they were talking about double D's they probably were referring to the first drop on Pompeii where the front rows feet get wet when you hit the river and then the second drop at the end. Oh wait...
