Bursting with energy, Sarasota’s own Rebel Heart continues the Friday Fest fun on August 17! Rebel Heart’s five-piece band shares their love for performing on the Bayside Lawn for a night of powerful and melodic country rock, in addition to a selection of pop, dance and blues hits from the last five decades. Performing covers and originals, Rebel Heart’s top-notch, creative musicianship makes for a perfect night of dancing and fun or lounging and listening – an event not to be missed!

Friday Fest, the Van Wezel’s FREE outdoor summertime concert series, is the perfect way to catch a summer sunset and a fun-filled night of live music on Sarasota Bay. The Friday Fest events run from 5 – 9 PM and are located on the Bayside Lawn of the Van Wezel. Concerts will feature food trucks, beverage vendors and more. While blankets and lawn chairs are welcome at all Friday Fest events, outside food and drink, including coolers, are prohibited. Friday Fest takes place “rain or shine”. In the event of inclement weather, the festival will move indoors to the Grand Foyer or the main stage of the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall.
