“The idea of Common Ground stemmed from the desire to bring the same small town festival experience I had from my childhood to the City of Charlotte,” said event coordinator Matt Ferguson.

The Common Ground Music and Arts Festival is Saturday, August 25, 2012 in the Plaza Midwood neighborhood and will feature some of Charlotte’s best musicians and artists.

Located on Thomas Avenue, The Common Ground Music and Arts Festival focuses on showcasing area musicians, artists, craftsmen and artisans. The street festival hopes to unite Charlotte neighborhoods for a weekend of fun and entertainment for all ages.

“The idea of Common Ground stemmed from the desire to bring the same small town festival experience I had from my childhood to the City of Charlotte,” said event coordinator Matt Ferguson, “Plaza Midwood is a unique and diverse area surrounded by some of Charlotte’s oldest and most beautiful neighborhoods. With so many neighborhoods within walking distance, I couldn’t think of a better place to host the event.”

Admission is free and the band line up includes local musicians like The Troublesome Youngs, Actual Proof, The New Familiars, Hayden Lee, Heywire, Moonshine Racers and Billy Jones and the Pocket. Street vendors will be filled with area craftsmen and artisans and the official after party will be hosted by Kickstand Burgers and Bar.
