RiverMusic

RiverLink’s RiverMusic — five Friday nights of free (!) live concerts by the French Broad River in the River Arts District of Asheville — will return for a fourth year in 2015. Once again, RiverLink huddled with Heira Productions to assemble a top-notch mix of quality national acts and local favorites at the RiverLink Sculpture and Performance Plaza in the River Arts District (map).

We’re going on a pretty regular schedule for RiverMusic and RiverFest. RiverMusic will be the second Friday of each month except May — May 1, June 12, July 10, September 11 and October 9. RiverFest, featuring the fabulous Anything-That-Floats Parade, will be on the second Saturday of August — August 8.

Gates open at 5. The music starts at 5:30, with our second band at 6:45 and our headliner at 8:15.

Mark your calendars now to come hang out (and volunteer!) at RiverMusic and RiverFest 2015.
