Any Nashville resident could give you a mile-long list of reasons why this city is the best, but one of the things that is sure to stand out is Live on the Green. Sadly, the free, weekly musical gathering in Public Square Park is coming to a close this weekend after three weeks of stellar entertainment, from the likes of Andra Day, Allen Stone, and White Denim, followed by Jenny Lewis, Passenger, and JR JR, and most recently Dawes, Kurt Vile & the Violators, and The Record Company. But there’s no time to be sad, because the final weekend kicks off tonight, Sept. 1 with a jam-packed lineup of Young The Giant, BØRNS, COIN, The Revivalists, SIMO, and *repeat repeat.
Live on the Green will conclude this week with an epic three-day, two-stage Labor Day weekend finale from Thursday Sept. 1 through Saturday Sept. 3. Per usual, LOTG is free and all ages, and the music tonight will run from 5:30 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 various other garages and street parking options are available on the surrounding blocks, as well as across the bridge at LP Field. VIP tickets and backstage passes are all sold out for tonight, but there are, as of publishing this, still some packages available for Saturday Sept. 3.
