DTE Energy Music Theatre is located at 7774 Sashabaw Rd in Clarkston, MI and is easily accessible off I-75 at Sashabaw Road (Exit 89).

In anticipation of increased traffic due to construction on Sashabaw Road, the I-75 modernization project and other I-75 road and bridge projects, 313 Presents is strongly advising guests to arrive early for the 2019 Summer Concert Season.

Sashabaw Road is undergoing reconstruction and widening from three to five lanes from I‑75 to just south of Clarkston Road in Independence Twp. Information and updates can be found at:

Also throughout the duration of the 2019 concert season, I-75 will be under construction from Coolidge Highway to 13 Mile Road as Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) continues its work on the I-75 modernization project (

MDOT is also repairing 21 bridges on I-75 between South Boulevard and Baldwin Road. Both directions of I-75 may be reduced to a single lane on nights and weekends. More information on I‑75 Road and Bridge Repairs can be found here


There are two entrances off Sashabaw Road, just north of I-75. The north drive is at the base of our large DTE Energy marquee. The entrance just south of the marquee is our South Drive and is primarily for VIP & Disabled parking.
