Lenz is proud to present Amplify Decatur 2016, a three-day concert series that will feature an outdoor music festival for 2,500 people on June 18. The Milk Carton Kids and Elephant Revival are headlining the outdoor concert, which is expected to draw 2,500 attendees. Amplify Decatur will also feature a three-night stand at Eddie’s Attic, June 17-19. The concert series benefits Decatur Cooperative Ministry, and is produced in partnership by Amplify My Community and Eddie’s Attic.
Lenz is a founding partner of the Amplify Decatur music festival, and has supported Amplify My Community (AMC) since its inception, presenting each of its five previous Decatur concert series, which have raised more than $80,000 for Decatur Cooperative Ministry.
Richard Lenz, president and CEO of Lenz, also serves as chairman of the AMC advisory board. “I have always believed that Decatur deserves a quality, sustainable music festival that reflects its values,” he said. “Our company is proud to support Amplify Decatur and help the good people whom Decatur Cooperative Ministry serves.”
The mission of Decatur Cooperative Ministry (DCM) is to help families facing homelessness settle into safe, stable homes and build healthy lives filled with peace, hope and opportunity.
Joining The Milk Carton Kids and Elephant Revival at the June 18 music festival are Penny & Sparrow and Eliot Bronson. NPR called The Milk Carton Kids, “Gillian Welch and David Rawlings-meet-Simon & Garfunkel with a splash of The Everly Brothers.” The New York Times said, “If Elephant Revival doesn’t make you smile, there’s something wrong with you.” Paste Magazine called Eliot Bronson’s most recent album “An Americana Gem.”
The June 18 festival features both a free and a ticketed component. From noon to 3 p.m. the festival will showcase emerging and local bands and will be free to the public. The daytime lineup includes Kristen Englenz, The Bitteroots, The Dammages, and Magic Birds.
From 5 to 11 p.m. the event will be ticketed, with admission restricted to ticket holders. Tickets cost $30 and are available via AmplifyDecatur.org. Premium seating is available for $45; VIP tickets are $100 and include preferred seating, complimentary beverages, and other benefits.
The festival will include food trucks, craft beer, and more. Re-entry will be permitted, allowing attendees to access Decatur’s award-winning bar and restaurant scene.
