LIVE ON THE GREEN, a free, outdoor concert series on the PUBLIC SQUARE in NASHVILLE, is set to return for its second season beginning SEPTEMBER 9th with FIVE FOR FIGHTING and TONIC. Other artists in the six-week series include DR. DOG, THE WAILERS, BAND OF HORSES, JJ GREY & MOFRO and JONATHAN TYLER AND THE NORTHERN LIGHTS.
The concert series is produced by TUNED IN BROADCASTING Triple A WRLT (LIGHTNING 100) in partnership with the NASHVILLE MAYOR’s OFFICE.
"NASHVILLE is Music City and to live up to our name, we should have as much live-music entertainment as possible," NASHVILLE Mayor KARL DEAN said. "Live On the Green is a chance for people to enjoy our beautiful Public Square park -- the only green roof on a municipal building in Nashville -- and hear a diverse array of musical talent performed right on the steps of our Metro Courthouse."
Held on a green roof that sits atop a five-level subterranean parking garage with a rainwater collection system, Live On the Green is an eco-conscious concert series. Carbon offset efforts will be made throughout the entire event series including recycling; use of reusable, sustainable and biodegradable materials; healthy food vendors; organic merchandising; drinking water tents; engaging participants with green initiatives; and leased equipment and energy-efficient lighting and sound.
