The 2017 season of Live on the Green kicked off last week with a spectacular lineup of St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Michael Franti & Spearhead, and Arkells, setting the bar high for all of the amazing artists in the shows to come. Keeping the ball rolling, the annual, free, outdoor fest continues tonight, Aug. 17 at Public Square Park with another stellar bill, this week featuring Local Natives, Real Estate, and Minus the Bear.
Following the format adopted a few years back, Live on the Green will run four consecutive Thursdays and culminate with an epic three-day, two-stage finale, boasting one of the most exciting season lineups ever. Per usual, LOTG is free and all ages, and music will run from 6:15 p.m. to 11 p.m. Gates open at 5 p.m., and there will be plenty of food and beer vendors on site to meet your needs. Parking is just $5 at the Public Square Park Garage below the festival site and at Nissan E and F lots across the Woodland St Bridge, and various other garages and street parking options are available on the surrounding blocks. Finally, if you’re looking to up the ante on your LOTG experience, VIP tickets and backstage passes are typically available for purchase, however they generally sell out in advance.
