Each year, Rockford, Illinois becomes a hub for music fans all over the state. Nationally renowned pop and rock acts from
all over the country descend upon this awesome venue, taking in the open air and some hot tunes. Make sure you and your
friends are there in time for the show to begin when On the Waterfront starts this year!
The On the Waterfront Music Festival is intricately tied to the history of Rockford. In 1983, the city was suffering for
high unemployment. As a way to raise the mood and generate some business, a music festival was organized with more than
100 performers. Every year on Labor Day weekend, this festival has carried on as a tradition.
On the Waterfront Music Festival tickets are now available! Just
look up above and see how many are left and for what days. In the past, everyone from classic guitar men like Buddy Guy
to pop acts like Adam Lambert and classic rockers like Ted Nugent have appeared on stage. Get concert
tickets to this year's show and see who will be there.
