"Smyrna at Night" features a block party atmosphere with more than 20 performers at venues inside and out on South Main Street, West Commerce Street, South Street and Market Street Plaza.
The Smyrna at Night music festival is moving to a Saturday night, after being held on Thursdays for a few years and then Friday last year.
The date for this year’s festival is Saturday, June 8 from 3-10 p.m., at several venues in downtown Smyrna, with free inside and outdoor performances planned. Market Street Plaza and portions of Main, Commerce and South streets will be closed to traffic, creating a block party atmosphere.
This year’s headliner is Robert Randolph & The Family Band, among more than 20 acts performing.

Robert Randolph & The Family Band first gained national attention with the release of their debut album, “Live at the Wetlands” in 2002, according to the group’s Facebook page. While creating three more studio recordings over the next eight years, “Unclassified,” “Colorblind” and “We Walk This Road,” the group toured and played at festivals including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
Randolph has been named to the list of Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time,” and he’s collaborated with Eric Clapton, Dave Matthews, The Roots and Jack White.
The venues for Smyrna at Night include the Lemon Leaf Café, The Painted Stave, Smyrna Music Garden, Smyrna Opera House and Citizens’ Hose Company (Smyrna Firehouse), with a stage on South Main Street and the main stage on Market Street Plaza near town hall.
A variety of food and drinks will be on sale.
The concert was co-produced by NüPOINT Marketing and Gable Music Ventures with the Town of Smyrna, and the presenting sponsor was WSFS Bank.
