Every year, you will usually hear us say something like “this year’s music program is more robust than ever!” However, this year’s music program is so much more gargantuan and excitingly eclectic than previous years by every conceivable metric.
It’s just a fact. 30+ bands, 3 venues, 3 nights (and a Sunday Dinner). From hip hop to metal, electronic music to indie rock, we more than cover the gamut with our expansive line-up.
Free-Times music writer Jordan Lawrence curated the program this year, channelling his extensive knowledge of music in the state to bring the best, most genre-diverse music to the people.
Take a peek below at our events, and below that is our line-up!
When: Sunday, April 15 from 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Where: On Monticello Road next to Hyatt Park
Cost: FREE! and Family Friendly!
