This summer and fall, the Levitt Foundation is supporting 400 plus free concerts in 22 towns and cities, empowering communities to transform neglected or underused public spaces into thriving destinations open to all. And many of these concerts are happening now.

Levitt lawns are community gathering places where everyone is welcome, regardless of the size of their pocketbooks (or dancing abilities). And with an eclectic mix of talent on every Levitt stage, there’s something for everyone to enjoy — from acclaimed, emerging artists to seasoned music legends.

The Levitt Foundation’s support is only part of the equation. It takes a community’s support to bring the free Levitt concerts to life every year. Next time you’re picnicking or dancing on the lawn, and you see that bucket coming around, be sure to support the free Levitt concerts in your community.

The Levitt AMP Middlesboro Music Series returns for the second year to the Levitt AMP Middlesboro Pop-Up Park — downtown Middlesboro’s increasingly vibrant green space that was formerly a vacant, gravel lot — to augment the city’s community-driven revitalization of its economically challenged downtown, encouraging further community investment in the arts and promoting Middlesboro as a cultural destination.

Presented by Discover Downtown Middlesboro, Inc, a nonprofit dedicated to revitalizing downtown Middlesboro.
