The Huntsville Music office has announced the schedule for the city’s second annual Huntsville Music Month.
The monthlong dive into the thriving music culture of Huntsville seeks to “encourage collaborations, provide career development resources and champion Huntsville’s appeal to musicians and fans as a music-friendly city.”
Mayor Tommy Battle said the city has come a long way in establishing itself as a music city. He believes that the live performances at the Orion Amphitheater and Von Braun Center appeal to local music fans and those of surrounding areas.
“People from across the country are traveling here to see their favorite artists on our stages and we’re happy to have them,” Battle said. “We hope they tell their friends and families about their wonderful experience in Huntsville, Alabama.”
The Huntsville Music Month calendar is filled with over 100 events and will start off with a new, free concert series called Launchpad. The series will run in Big Spring Park from Sept. 1 through Sept. 3 and begin at 5 p.m. each night. Food trucks will have concessions, alcoholic beverages are permitted if they are in the designated purple cups.
