The hottest ticket in Raleigh!
Celebrating it’s 5th year, Midtown Music Fest is presented by Sir Walter Chevrolet and R&D Brewing, and benefits VAE: Visual Art Exchange in Raleigh. Midtown Music Fest has always featured a mix of original music and fan favorite covers, but this year’s amazing lineup culminates with national headliner Rayland Baxter!
The son of musician Bucky Baxter, Rayland Baxter is a popular American alternative country musician from Nashville, Tennessee. Baxter’s third LP, Wide Awake, a catchy collection of pop hooks that mix Beatles melodies with a bottom-end groove torn from the Stax Records playbook. But it’s far from the detached work that its isolated origins might suggest. Released last week on ATO Records, it is Baxter’s sharpest batch of social commentary, a 10-song rumination on the state of the country
Midtown Music Fest also features local craft beer & beverages, popular food trucks, Hip Hop dancers, flame throwers, stilt walkers, custom LED teepees, flower crowns, other artful activities and a vendor village. Don’t miss this one!
