5th Annual Summit Music Festival

Hope St and Blackstone Blvd, Providence, RI   (view map)

The days are shorter, the nights are cooler, and summer is slipping away. But you can enjoy a big dose of fun at the Summit Music Festival. The fifth annual fest is headlined by Red Baraat, an eight-piece ensemble from Brooklyn which blends North Indian bhangra rhythms, jazz, funk, and hip-hop into an irresistible force. The diverse bill also boasts the blues-powered Selwyn Birchwood Band, and local talents Smith & Weeden, the ukulele-powered Dr. Jones & the Shiners, singer/songwriter Emeline Easton, and Johnny Lingo. There’s much more to do while absorbing the tunes: peruse crafts by area artisans, indulge in treats from Poco Loco Tacos, Lotus Pepper, Fugo, Tricycle Ice Cream, and the beer and wine garden hosted by Trinity Brewhouse, and make your mark on the 40-foot-long/eight-foot-high art wall with the guidance of the folks from the Avenue Concept. The fest is at Lippitt Park, Hope St (between 10th and 11th streets, Providence, from 1 to 6 pm — and admission is free |
