Free concerts return to 2023 Fox Pointe lineup alongside some paid weekend concerts

LANSING, Ill. (May 23, 2023) – Fox Pointe — Lansing’s outdoor concert venue — will begin its fourth summer season with the start of its hallmark Wednesday evening free concert series on June 7.

Continuing a trend started last year, this year’s Fox Pointe season will include more paid concert options, while free concerts will continue on most Wednesdays of the summer. New to the paid slate is a four-part Friday Night Lights series, which will feature two consecutive headline band performances on Friday nights. According to a Village of Lansing press release, these $10 concerts will feature “giveaways and extra fun.”

Tickets for paid events are available at FoxPointe.org, or at the venue on the day of the event.

“This year’s lineup combines multiple groups playing for the first time at Fox Pointe, along with some of the most popular acts from prior seasons,” said Ken Reynolds, Director of Venue Operations for Lansing. “We encourage our guests to spread the word and ‘Get to the Pointe!’”
