Live On The Green Music Fest Pivots To FM For 2020

Live on My Green 2020 FM Music Festival to program more than 100 acts' pre-recorded live performances over Labor Day Weekend.

Even though Lightning 100 isn't hosting its annual Live On the Green music festival in person at Public Square Park this year, the local station has announced a "radio-friendly" alternative.

The 2020 Live On My Green FM Music Festival will be coming to you via WRLT Lightning 100.1 FM over Labor Day weekend, Thursday, September 3 through Sunday, September 6, 2020.

“Live music looks much different this year,” says Lester Turner, President of Tuned in Broadcasting, Lightning 100 and the Executive Producer for Live On The Green. “We cannot have an on-site event this year, but we want to be the soundtrack for your on-site event – in your backyard, on the water or wherever you may be all weekend long."

Fans can tune in all weekend to hear recorded live festival performances, including exclusive never before heard content and interviews with the artists including Amos Lee, Black Pumas, Bruce Hornsby, Dawes, Devon Gilfillian, Jack Johnson & Friends, Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, Larkin Poe, Liza Anne, Marcus King, Moon Taxi, My Morning Jacket, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Wood Brothers and many more.

In addition to performances by previous Live On The Green artists and archival music content that you can’t hear anywhere else, Live On My Green will also feature the finalists of the Music City Mayhem contest with exclusive, recorded performances.

Fans will have the opportunity to win prize packages throughout the weekend to elevate their backyard festival experience. Additionally, exclusive merchandise from this historic event will be available for purchase in the Lightning 100 Merch Store HERE.

Live On My Green will provide the music, just choose your player: 100.1 FM, Lightning100.com, a smartspeaker or the Lightning 100 app. Celebrate Live On My Green from home with your closest friends and neighbors and a hundred of your favorite bands as the soundtrack – socially distanced, of course.

"As Nashville’s Independent Radio Station, we have been engaging the community at Live On The Green since 2009," Turner continues. "Just because we can’t be together in Public Square Park this year, doesn’t mean we cannot still share the spirit of Live On The Green.”

Lightning 100’s Live On The Green Music Festival will return to Public Square Park in 2021.
