Maybe you are a die hard sports fanatic. Or maybe, you don’t know the difference between a touchdown and home run. Whatever the case may be, there is no denying that nothing draws attention in the month of March quite like NCAA’s annual college basketball tournament, especially when incorporating a one-of-a-kind concert experience into the mix.
The National Collegiate Athletic Association and Turner Live Events have announced the complete list of artists set to perform at this year’s March Madness Music Festival. Headliners include country sensation Keith Urban, chart-topping DJ duo The Chainsmokers and legendary music veterans Aerosmith.
The free, three-day bash will take place March 31-April 2 at Margaret T. Hance Park in Phoenix, Arizona and is in conjunction with the Final Four and championship games. Although no tickets are required, concert admission comes on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Each evening, the festival features a different sponsor. The AT&T Block Party kicks off the fun that Friday, followed by Coca-Cola Music on Saturday and Capital One JamFest closing the show Sunday.
Additional artists scheduled to take the stage are Blink-182, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Capital Cities, Grouplove, Leon Bridges and Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Swears.
If you are unable to attend the festival in Phoenix, a selection of the weekend’s concerts will be streamed on Bleacher Report and NCAA’s official websites, as well as NCAA’s YouTube channel.
