On Aug. 22, the Stephenson Amphitheater and Rose Garden will be home to one of the summer’s most diverse and exciting events with Groove in the Garden. Presented by The Pour House Music Hall & Younger Brother Productions, Groove in the Garden is an all-day music marathon that brings together some of the state’s finest artists for an eclectic mixture of sun-soaked indie pop, rustic Southern rock, soulful R&B and rousing bluegrass. The event will take place from 12:00 pm to 9:00 pm and brings together vendors, food trucks and a wide array of local musicians for a day full of good vibes and good times in one of Raleigh’s most scenic locales. Admission is $10 and tickets can be purchased at The Pour House Music Hall’s website.
The Love Language will headline the event, with their dreamy pop aesthetics serving as a perfect aural accompaniment to the stunning visuals of Stephenson Amphitheater. With Bombadil’s quirky folk-pop, the recently reunited alt-country icons Six String Drag, the soulful sounds of Laura Reed, Jack The Radio’s gritty swamp-rock, Nuclear Honey’s Southern roots-rock jams, The Midatlantic’s tight bluegrass and First Person Plural’s dynamic indie rock rounding out the lineup, Aug. 22 will prove to be one of the most invigorating events of the year.
But music won’t be the only thing attendees can enjoy throughout the day, as Groove in the Garden will feature food trucks such as KoKyu, vendors such as House of Swank, and local businesses like Raleigh Cross Fit. Younger Brother Productions and The Pour House have also teamed with Taxi Taxi to provide discounted rides for attendees that purchase their tickets online in advance, helping to bring together local businesses and artists for a wide-scaled community building event for folks of all ages. Organized bike rides with Oaks & Spokes will be happening throughout the day to encourage attendees to be active, take alternative transportation and meet new people.
