A few years ago, the locally based Elevation Group launched LaureLive
, a two-day music festival held at Laurel School, an all-girls (K-12) independent school.
The festival has become an annual tradition, and organizers have just announced the lineup for this year’s festival, which will take place on Laurel's Butler Campus on Saturday, June 8, and Sunday, June 9.
Irish singer-songwriter Hozier will headline Saturday night. Dirty Heads, Moon Taxi, MisterWives, COIN and Dennis Lloyd will also perform that night.
Singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow will headline on Sunday, and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Lake Street Dive, AJR, Rodrigo y Gabriela and Red Sun Rising will perform that day as well.
There will be nine food stands and five food trucks in the main concert area plus additional food trucks on the south side of the concert venue. Food selections will feature a variety of dishes that include vegan and gluten-free options. There will also be a few "grab-and- go" options.
Local acts such as the Vindys, Front Porch Lights, Ashley Fulton and the Shootouts are also on the bill.
Weekend passes, single-day tickets and VIP tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. tomorrow at LaureLive.com
