Nashville is well known for its music and offers lots of it. This year marked the return of the Live on the Green Music Festival, which has a very special meaning to the Nashville community. Started in 2009 by Nashville's independent radio station Lightning 100, a locally owned and operated station, the festival has been a very popular event attracting over 700,000 fans across the United States as well as 15 other countries to Nashville. Why is this Live on the Green and Lightning 100 so popular? The reason is simple. For over 30 years Lightning 100 has focused on a wider variety of music in multiple genres that most other stations do not play. The station's dedication is backed by year after year awards for it's unique programming while focusing on new and upcoming artists. The station and festival both have had very strong support from the community, and with their contributions the return of Live on the Green in 2022 is once again a reality!
This year Live on the Green Music Festival provided five days of music over Labor Day weekend across two stages in Nashville's Public Square Park, while continuing their tradition of keeping admission COMPLETELY FREE to all.
