The Mudbottom Revival Music Festival is hosted by Dog River Clearwater Revival, a group dedicated to preservation of Dog River ecosystem and water quality. This year’s concert features Marcia Ball and Symone French & the Trouille Troupe.

What makes this festival unique is that it’s fully accessible by water and by land. Buying a land ticket allows you to walk, bike, kayak, paddleboard, etc. on over to the festival and enjoy the music from the shore. A boat ticket allows you (and however many people fit on your boat) to stay and enjoy the tunes from the water.

2. Live at Five Concert Series: The Wildflowers with Still Standing

Every fall and spring, music groups from all over take to the Halstead Amphitheater stage to perform a series of free live concerts, called the Live at Five Concert Series. Join the Wildflowers, a Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers cover band, and Still Standing, an Elton John act, on Friday, April 29th for a night of all your favorite hits.

3. Tim McGraw: The Amphitheater at the Wharf
