The Fields at Waterloo -Stanhope, NJ
Waterloo Concert Field is located in Allamuchy Mountain State Park. In the 1960s, the nonprofit Waterloo Foundation for the Arts restored the village and began holding major concerts and festivals, such as Lolapalooza, Phish and the Grateful Dead.
Located next to a river and with a quarry just steps away, Waterloo Concert Field is also a short walk to Waterloo Village which is on the US National Register of Historic Places and is a New Jersey State Historic Site.
Waterloo Village dates back to the time of the Munsee (Lenape) Indians who inhabited northern New Jersey and made use of the rich natural resources and the abundance of the landscape and waterways. Waterloo Village became a small inland port on the cross-state trip from the Delaware River to the Hudson River.
