It’s hard to believe that we have reached the final weekend of Live on the Green. It seems like just yesterday that we kicked things off with Andra Day, Allen Stone, and White Denim, and have watched the bar continually rise with Jenny Lewis, Passenger, and JR JR. in week two and Dawes, Kurt Vile & the Violators, and The Record Company last week. Now, we’ve reached the final weekend, and things got off to a bang last night with Young The Giant and BØRNS leading the charge including a pack of talented locals including COIN, SIMO, and *repeat repeat. Tonight, the lineup grows even more when Band Of Horses lead a hit parade including another stack of locals featuring Nikki Lane, The Wild Feathers, Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes, Rayland Baxter, Josh Farrow, and Canadian rockers The Sheepdogs.
Following the format adopted a couple years back, and expanded last year, 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 p.m. to 11 p.m. Gates open at 4 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.
