    Live on the Green’s 2015 lineup is here

    Live on the Green

    The annual Live on the Green music festival/concert series is back in Public Square Park downtown starting in August, and this week, producers Lightning 100 let us in on the 2015 lineup.

    For past seasons, they’ve pulled in well-known names and rising talents spanning a bunch of different styles, from soulful rock band Alabama Shakes to bluegrass/folk act Trampled by Turtles and New Orleans icon Dr. John. This year brings just as much to get excited about.

    On the schedule so far:

    August 20:

    Lord Huron
    Nashville pop/rock band Elliot Root, Texan singer-songwriter Shakey Graves and rootsy L.A. band Lord Huron

    September 3:

    Delta Saints
    Brooklyn folkie Greg Holden, Nashville “psychedelic voodoo rock and roll” band The Delta Saints and a headliner to be announced

    September 10:

    Each and every one of these talent-packed shows is free, but if you’re looking to roll in style a tad more, Live on the Green does have VIP options, including the Lighting Lounge VIP pass (catering, drinks, lounge tent seating, special viewing) and Backstage VIP passes (backstage access and lots more), plus September 10-12 three-day weekend passes and season passes (costs depend on the show, from $65 for Lounge VIP passes, $150 for Backstage, $219/$419 for the three-day weekend and $399/$799 for the whole season). Check out the Live on the Green VIP options here.
