The popular outdoor concert series, Friday Night Live!, will return to the Herndon Town Green on May 5.

Organizers released the schedule for the program’s 29th season earlier this week.

“We have an exciting band lineup this year and can’t wait to see all our fans again this summer. It’s hard to believe that this is our 29th season,” Laura Poindexter, the chair of Friday Night Live!, said.

Sponsored by the Dulles Chamber of Commerce, the series will include 16 concerts every Friday through the end of August.

“We have a great variety of bands within the rock cover band genre. Where other venues and concert series have moved toward tribute acts, we’ve found that our audience prefers a more varied experience at our events,” Poindexter continued.

The complete schedule is below:

Food from local restaurants like Bolay and Jimmy’s Old Tavern will be available on site. Beer and wine is also available for purchase. A portion of tip money from alcoholic purchases will go to the Herndon High School’s alcohol-free grad party.
