Riverbend Festival is back at Ross’s Landing in Downtown Chattanooga, TN. From June 2 to 4, thousands of people will flock to the Tennessee River to experience three days of pop, indie, and soul.
Headliners are Marren Morris, Nathaniel Ratliff and The Night Sweats, and Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue. Coin, Goose, Mavis Staples, GAYLE, and Indigo de Souza are other acts to check out.
Premiering in June of 1982, Riverbend was a means to celebrate the community in which Chattanoogans shared. Due to losing a year because of the pandemic, Riverbend will celebrate its 40th anniversary as Chattanooga’s top festival. In the spirit of community, Riverbend encourages its attendees to explore the area. You can check out the Tennessee Aquarium just feet away from Ross’s Landing, attend a Southern Belle Riverboat Cruise, and visit Ruby Falls, the tallest underground waterfall open to the public.
One thing I love about music festivals is the opportunity to become involved with the festival itself; Riverbend offers music lovers the chance to do just that. Volunteers must work a minimum of 8 hours and attend an orientation, to receive free Riverbend Merchandise and one General Admission ticket for all three days of the festival.
Ticket options include Single Day GA Tickets at $95.00, Tier 2 3-Day General Admission ($145) and VIP Tickets ($405), and Artist Experience 3-Day VIP ($6,000) and Artist Experience Single Day VIP ($2,100). The Artist Experience is a chance for a Riverbend attendee to live like their favorite band member for the weekend. This personalized experience offers complimentary beverages and food, access to private air-conditioned restrooms, and access to two preferred viewing areas. This package closes on April 30, so be sure to purchase by then for the ultimate experience.
