FREE Big Dance Concert Series this Weekend

Big Dance Concert Series

The NCAA Men’s Final Four tournament is in town this weekend and you’ve probably heard that one Indiana team is still in the hunt for the National Championship this year – Butler University. There will be tens of thousands of basketball fans in town this weekend to see the games (Lucas Oil Stadium, where the games will be held, can hold more than 70,000 spectators!) and there’s way more to do than just watch basketball. Amy wrote about the Final Four Bracket Town held at the Indiana Convention Center starting tomorrow (April 1) through Monday, April 5, but there’s still more to do.

On Friday, you can head down to Lucas Oil Stadium and watch each of the teams practice for free! There will also be free concerts on Friday, Saturday and Sunday on the lawn at White River State Park, just a few blogs northwest of Lucas Oil Stadium (See this map of downtown | PDF). We’ve listed the details for the practice and concert schedules below. Remember, all the concerts are free! There are even more events going on throughout the weekend, check out the NCAA’s Final Four Events page for more information.
