With a stellar lineup of musicians, the Black Rock Coalition travels back to the origins of rock ‘n’ roll. Join them in a land of 1,000 dances where Ruth Brown reigns and Big Joe Turner dominates as the brawny-voiced Boss of the Blues, while Wilson Pickett, the Drifters, and Sam & Dave crank out the hits.

After hours: Silent Disco powered by Quiet Events
At 10:00, when the sound system turns off, the dance party keeps going—DJs Connie T. Empress, Monica Sharp, and Gaylord Fields broadcast directly to your headphones until 11:30. Wireless headset is free with your ticket; $5 at the door for Silent Disco only.
