Promotions in Motion and Ives Concert Park will once again produce the Forever Grateful Music Festival in August. This year's event has expanded to Friday night, August 18, and all day Saturday, August 19, with non-stop music across two stages celebrating the music of Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers, Phish, Jerry Garcia band and Bob Marley. In true Grateful Dead style, the collaboration of live local music will also include some bluegrass, funk and jams. Tickets for the event range from $15 to $55.
Promotions in Motion and Ives Concert Park are teaming up with local rock station WRKI (i95) to present Mock Stock Saturday, on July 29 from noon to 10:30pm, in celebration of i95's 40th birthday. Ten hours of pure rock & roll music will pay tribute to classic rock legends Aerosmith, AC/DC, Santana, The Who, Van Halen and others. The event will feature headliner Kashmir for a 90-minute performance of Led Zeppelin, along with a laser light show. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door.
Both festivals will offer food, beverages and vendors. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy the music.
