A New Music Series Lands at Dix Park this Summer

Last July, the newly christened Dix Park staged a one-day music festival on three sites within its three-hundred-plus-acre space, but that was clearly just a warm-up for bigger things. This summer, in partnership with Deep South Entertainment, the Raleigh park will present a monthly, three-part free music series that organizers hope will continue throughout many more summers.

Kicking off with a show featuring The Veldt, Wayleaves, ZenSoFly, and Enenra on June 24, the inaugural Y'all At Dix Park series, sponsored by Stella Artois, will consist of three daylong concerts featuring four bands each. The other concerts, on July 22 and August 26, feature Hammer No More the Fingers and Birds of Avalon in the other two headlining spots, respectively.

The planners have made a laudable effort to include both established frontrunners as well as to provide a platform for young talent. To that end, each concert will feature a band of local nineteen-and-unders in an opening slot. Concerts will run from four until ten p.m. at Harvey Hill. Along with tunes all day, the fest will offer a slew of outdoorsy activities, all the better to keep from getting weighed down by the promised bevy of beer and food-truck options. —David Klein
