NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Like so many other fan favorites, Lightning 100's annual Live on the Green music festival had to go virtual this year due to COVID-19.

Through radio and video streaming, fans can still listen to more than 130 music acts from now until Labor Day over the air and online.

For select performances, you can also stream live videos of bands taking the stage. Lightning 100 is encouraging everyone to host listening parties in their own backyards. "Everyone can set up a stereo and safely have some fun and still enjoy the festival," said Dan Buckley, the programming director for Lightning 100.

In some ways, the grass really is greener on the other side. The other side of the pond that is. "I was getting messages from all over the world. Someone was streaming us while they were paddle boarding in Europe. It’s so cool," said Buckley.

But don't be mistaken, Buckley still misses the music echoing through the streets of downtown. "We want to get back on the steps of city hall and party," he said.

Until that's possible, Lightning 100 is making sure the music plays on.
