Chatham County Line will headline Live & Local: Spring Fest on Saturday, April 8, 2017. The previously announced free street festival will run 12:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the 2200 and 2300 blocks of Hillsborough Street and in Compiegne Park.

The band lineup is comprised entirely of acts from the Triangle and includes Chatham County Line, The Amateurs, The Beast, Saludos Compay, The Affectionates, and Tea Cup Gin.

“Chatham County Line is a fitting cap to the day and I could think of no better act that represents the whole “Live and Local” ethos,” said Director of Programs, David Dean, for Live It Up! Hillsborough Street.

Dean continued, “Our performers represent some of the best and most diverse established and up-and-coming acts the Triangle has to offer. They support the Live & Local mission to connect bring local talent together with our Hillsborough Street merchants. From reggae favorites The Amateurs, who literally used to live just a few feet from Hillsborough Street, to the soul and hip-hop jams of The Beast out of Durham.”

Raleigh Brewing Company will be the exclusive sponsor of the Spring Fest Beer Zone, adding a hyperlocal focus of the festival.
