The 2018 season of Live on the Green wraps up this weekend with a three-day finale running the nights of Thursday, Aug. 30 and Friday, Aug. 31 and concluding with an all-day lineup on Saturday, Sept. 1, all expanded to two stages for double the incredible acts. This season has been one for the books already, boasting a great lineup of Dispatch, The Wood Brothers, Mt. Joy, and Roscoe & Etta to kick it off, a spectacularly indie Cold War Kids, Car Seat Headrest, Colony House, and *repeat repeat in week two, and then a fun and varied bill with last week’s stacked offering of Trampled By Turtles, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, and Alanna Royale. Head below to find out more about the final three days, featuring a massive and impressive lineup of Jimmy Eat World, X Ambassadors, Dr. Dog, Natalie Prass, Republican Hair, Roots of a Rebellion, Matt and Kim, Elliot Root, The Wild Feathers, ZZ Ward, Theo Katzman, Rival Sons, Jackson Bruck & The Dukes of Hume, The Foxies, Savannah Conley, Luthi, Waker, The New Respects, Lissie, Mikky Ekko, Paul McDonald, Rayland Baxter, Arlie, Larkin Poe, and Mr. Steve, The Music Man.
Per usual, LOTG is free and all ages. Music for the Thursday event kicks off a bit earlier at 5:30 p.m., Friday starts at 5:15 p.m., and Saturday will be a full day affair starting at 1 p.m. Gates open each day one hour before the music begins, and there will be plenty of food and beer vendors on site to meet your needs. Parking is $10 at the Public Square Park Garage below the festival site and $5 at Nissan E and F lots across the Woodland St Bridge (except for Thursday, when the Titans have a pre-season game; plan accordingly), and various other garages and street parking options are available on the surrounding blocks (also, ride share is relatively simple with designated drop off and pick up spots). 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. And finally, the tradition of an official LOTG after party is back this year beginning each week at 11 p.m. at The Valentine on Broadway.
