This is a past event.


Freefest is what Detroit does best — an outdoor music fest featuring an awesome array of local artists that’s totally free of charge. This year, 11 bands of various genres will play on an impressive double stage well into the evening. Notable acts include electro dance project Flashclash, reggae infused rock band Red Fly Eye, and Sabbath-esque heavy rock outfit Tripp N Dixie. Starts at 7 p.m.; 1967 Cass Lake Rd, Keego Harbor; free admission; 21 and older. 

Sat., August 22
Nigel & the Dropout, Gosh Pith, Ancient Language In continuation with DIME and Summer in the Park’s free concert series in Capitol Park, three Detroit-based experimental electronic bands will take the stage for another chilled-out summer evening, complete with great food and drinks. Nigel & the Dropout bring their synth-based, sample-heavy DIY electro-punk sounds, while Gosh Pith gets cosmic with their blend of psych-rock and trap. Ancient Language rounds out the night with some soulful trip-hop.
