Have some fun in the sun this Saturday in Downtown Bloomington with some live music, food and drink. 

The GLT Summer Concert will bring free live music with its 19-annual show from 3:30 p.m. to 10 on Saturday, June 8 on the Museum Square in Downtown Bloomington. The show is for all ages. 

The lineup includes neo-eclectic local group 3rd Street Down, local rock group The Something Brothers, the Grammy award winning Rebirth Brass Band and the “goddess of gothic indie blues” Adia Victoria.  

“We’re bringing in entertainment that you would normally have to pay a lot of money to see,” GLT Development Director Melissa Libert said. “We have two local groups. [The Rebirth Brass Band] is from New Orleans, and our headliner Adia Victoria is from Nashville.” 

At 3:30 p.m. beer, wine and food will open. The concert will then kickoff with 3rd Street Down at 4:30 followed by The Something Brothers at 6. After that, Rebirth Brass Band will take the stage at 7:30 and headliner Adia Victoria’s close to the concert will start at 8:30. 

Bring your blankets and chairs to enjoy the outdoors concert. The concert is rain or shine. If severe weather hits, the show will be postponed and will resume as soon as possible. 

“These are pretty high-ticket groups and they will be free tomorrow,” Libert said. “It’s one day only.” 

The Summer Concert is presented by CEFCU.
