Common Ground Music Festival Kicks Off Monday

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) -- Stages are set, tents are up and booths are ready for Lansing's Common Ground Music Festival.

The 14th annual event is back at Adado Riverfront Park, kicking off Monday evening.

Workers spent Sunday doing last minute preps, like hanging banners, decorating stages and setting up tables and chairs.

"As much as we can get done today before the last minute push tomorrow," said Scott Keith, Board Chair of Center Park Productions.

Monday through Sunday officials expect between 70,000 and 80,000 people.

Some people coming from across the country, packing Riverfront Park.

"It is slowly growing to be a national music festival," Keith said.

Not to mention the hundreds of people helping behind the scenes.

"It can range from about 300 to 400 people that put on an event such as this," said Lansing Entertainment Vice President Tristyn Wrightmeyer.

Everyone, coming together, to bring spectators three stages packed with close to 70 artists.

Like the Bare Naked Ladies, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Little Big Town and Ludacris.

Of course, this week means more than just music.

"Getting with architects of air, then going into the color run and the Disney matinee and finishing up with Ludacris. It's going to be a great week," Keith said.

Tickets are still on sale on Common Ground's website, at the ticket booth and on the website's mobile app.
