Nightfall Concert Series begins new season May 1




The Nightfall Concert Series begins its 27th year of summer musical programming for 19 weeks straight, running each Friday night from May 1 through Sept. 4 at Miller Plaza on Market Street.

Presented and produced by Chattanooga Presents, Nightfall is a free outdoor concert series featuring headline performances by a broad spectrum of music performed by national and international artists. In keeping with tradition, Nightfall also has a strong commitment to the local music scene by featuring Chattanooga bands as opening acts each week. Openers begin at 7 p.m., followed the headliner at 8 p.m.

This year, Nightfall will no longer be using a ticket system for beverage purchases.The new point of sales system will eliminate the need for tickets and allow patrons to pay directly with cash, credit card, or debit card for beer, wine, or moonshine cocktails at the point at which they’re served.

Also new this year are Nightfall discount beverage cards, which will offer a 20 percent savings on drink purchases. The cards will be worth $100, but cost only $80 to purchase. The Nightfall discount cards are available now on the Nightfall website www.NightfallChattanooga.com, and will be offered at each show at the Nightfall merchandise table next to the pavilion.

Food trucks and non-alcoholic drink concessions will also be available on site. No outside food or beverages are allowed to be brought in to Nightfall.

This year’s schedule has been extended by an additional date to include a special “Mocs Take Over Nightfall” on Sept. 4, which will feature a regular Nightfall show, preceded by a UTC Pep Rally.
