It’s official: Friday Night Live! has announced its lineup for the 30th season of the popular outdoor concert series, which is produced by the Dulles Chamber of Commerce.

Live bands will take the stage in downtown Herndon behind the Herndon Municipal Center (777 Lynn Street) every Friday from May 3 through August 23. The performances take place between 6 and 10 p.m.

“It’s amazing that this is our 30th consecutive season. When other major events have been canceled or were temporarily on hold due to COVID, we produced a virtual season in 2020 and were back on the Town Green in 2021. We couldn’t have been so successful without the dedication of our volunteers and the loyalty of our fans,” said Laura Poindexter, Friday Night Live!’s Chairman.

Here’s the full line-up:

May 3: Three Sheets to the Wind
May 10: Kristen and the Noise
May 17: 8 Track Jones + Billy T Wilde Band
May 24: Royals
May 31: Under the Covers + Legal in The District

June 7: Vertigo Red + Kat Atomic
June 14: Screaming Monkeys
June 21: The Reflex
June 28: The Rockets + Uncle Jesse
July 5: LauraLea & Tripp Fabulous
July 12: keeton + Collective
July 19: Herr Metal + Dr FU
July 26: It’s All Good
August 2: Shake the Room
August 9: Social Call
August 16: Doc Marten and the Flannels
August 23: JunkFood

The event is sponsored by several organizations, including Arts Herndon, Herndon Community Television, Herndon WinterMarkt, Investin, Mile 20 at Mediterranean Breeze, MW Architects LLC, Ned Devine’s Irish Gastro Pub & Restaurant, Office Evolution, Party DC events, Queenb Creative and Revival Construction.

Doug Downer, the event’s founder said, said he did not envision the concert series continuing as long as it has.
“The dedication of our Organizing Committee and our fantastic volunteers as well as the support of the Town and our sponsors has helped to create the fantastic community tradition we have today. This event brings people together in a safe, fun environment as well as helps local businesses and community organizations. Here’s to 30 more years!” he said.
