On The Roof, Music Series Returns To Downtown Evansville
Free concerts will return to Downtown Evansville’s most unique venue beginning in May.
The Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana announced the schedule for its outdoor concert series “On The Roof” Tuesday. The free summer performances take place on the Arts Council’s Rooftop Art Deck in Downtown.
Dozens of Arts Council events and concerts were canceled in 2020, but as vaccinations rise and health restrictions lift, the concert series is poised for a strong comeback this year.
“People want live music now more than ever,” said Arts Council Community Director Zach Evans. “’On The Roof’ is the perfect way to bring our community together and to get Evansville musicians back to performing live and making money again.”
The Arts Council’s Rooftop Art Deck is an open-air venue that features views overlooking Main Street in Downtown and artist-designed furniture. In addition to hosting concerts, the roof is also used for meetings, party rentals and other special events.
Here is the 2021 lineup, with more concerts to be announced. Performances are 7-10 p.m. All shows are free and open to all ages.
