Now in its eighth season, Nashville’s annual Live on the Green music fest is set to return Thursday, Aug. 11, spanning, as it has for the last couple of years, across four weeks, Aug. 18 & 25, ending with an epic three-day weekend event Sept. 1-3.
Per usual, LOTG is all ages, totally FREE, and features a variety of local food trucks, craft beer, and more, with two stages (a new addition last year) of fantastic outdoor music in Public Square Park. Additionally, a limited number of VIP and backstage VIP tickets are available here, with perks like special access, private bathrooms, shaded viewing areas, and free food and drinks.
Last year’s lineup, which included Passion Pit, Ben Folds, Lord Huron, and Cold War Kids, set the bar incredibly high, boasting more performers than ever, but 2016 manages to match, with a massive slate of incredible acts, including some returning perfumers!
Here’s who you can expect to see this season:
Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals
Band of Horses
Young the Giant
Kurt Vile & The Violators
