Wow, we did it! Thanks to all who voted for Springfield once again this year to receive a second Levitt Amp Music Grant! Winners were just announced this past Friday, which includes 20 cities selected by a panel based on crowd voting in Levitt’s ongoing poll. This means that once again, there will be 10 free concerts happening out on the Y-Block downtown right by the governor’s mansion, and near our downtown location featuring diverse lineups of national acts featuring different genres throughout the summer. The dates have yet to be officially announced, but it is looking likely to be from the end of May through the end of July that concerts take place.
This time around Levitt AMP Springfield is opening their email up to taking suggestions on national acts that you want to see play the Levitt stage!! That’s right, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions. Also be sure to follow Levitt AMP Springfield on facebook
This past summer’s bands included The Skatalites from Jamaica, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band from New Orleans, John Moreland from Oklahoma, and more.
