PERFORM IN THE 2023 COMMONS LIVE MUSIC SERIES

 

We are accepting applications for artists and bands for the Commons Live Music Series in Downtown Midland!

Are you or your band interested in performing in the 2023 Commons Live Music Series? We are looking for talented musicians and bands from across Michigan to perform during our Downtown Midland Pedestrian Plaza months, June – September, from 7-9 p.m. every Friday and Saturday night.

What is the Commons Live Music Series?

The Commons Live Music Series is an extraordinary community event taking place in Downtown Midland’s Pedestrian Plaza, a two block road closure on Main Street from Ashman to Rodd Streets. Throughout summer 2022, more than 100,000 Pedestrian Plaza visitors played outdoor games, enjoyed adult beverages in The Commons social district, attended special events, and of course, danced the night away to live music. The performances will take place every Friday and Saturday night from 7-9 p.m. starting June 9 through September 30, 2023. All performances are held on the street in the intersection of McDonald and Main Street on a 24 x 16 ft. stage.

The Commons Live Music Series draws bands from across Michigan and folks from the mid Michigan area and beyond to share their love of music. Going on our fourth year, this series has now become a summer staple in Downtown Midland.
