Florida Georgia Line: What you need to know to go

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

The countdown is on for what is perhaps the biggest music event of the year in Youngstown.

A large crowd is expected for Saturday's Y Live concert at Stambaugh Stadium featuring Florida Georgia Line.

Organizers are making some changes from 2017's Zac Brown Band concert. 

"We added the whole plaza area as now the ticketed area. We are going to have more gates to get in. Metal detectors, last year we wanded people; this year we are going to have metal detectors. This will get people inside much faster," said Eric Ryan of JAC Live.

They are also tripling the number of restrooms by adding portable toilets all over the venue.

Zac Brown brought in 15,000 people. Ryan thinks Florida Georgia Line will be a record-breaker, possibly bringing in 19,000.

"Our research shows in 1960  John F. Kennedy was the largest social gathering in Youngstown. We certainly think we are going to be able to beat that record," Ryan said.
