Nashville To Offer Free Summer Concert Series

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A series of free concerts similar to "Dancing in the District" will kick off this summer in Nashville.

Mayor Karl Dean made the announcement Tuesday at LP Field. "Nashville Dancin'" will be on most Thursday nights from June 13 to August 1.

"The return of the Nashville Dancin' concert series is great news for Nashville and music fans," said Nashville Mayor Karl Dean. "The free concerts will be family-friendly and include many top names from a variety of musical genres."

The concerts at Riverfront Park will also include free parking at LP Field. There will be a free shuttle service offered, but concert goers are encouraged to use the Shelby Pedestrian Bridge.

TomKats Inc. and Kaleidoscope Media will produce the series in partnership with Dollar General, Mayor Karl Dean's office and the Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau.

"A generation of Nashvillians grew up with Dancin' [in the District], so it's natural that it return. In a lot of ways, it helped foster what Nashville is today," Tom Morales, owner of TomKats Inc., said in a news release.

Performers will be announced in about two weeks. Local food trucks will also be on hand each week.

"Dancing in the District" was the longest running free event in the city. It ended when Atlanta based organizer, Mad Bookings, folded in 2006.
