The Goodyear Lakeside Music Festival promises something for everyone! The evening line-up is:

OPENING ACT (4:30-5:15 p.m.) – Marble Heart (Country Jams): Recognized as Arizona’s premiere country variety band, Marble Heart was founded in 2007 by vocalist/guitarist Clint Williams. They play to audiences across the southwest bringing their tremendous energy and proven ability to entertain audiences of all ages.

EVENING KICKSTARTER (5:30-6:15 p.m.) – Swainn (Rock, Funk and Folk with a Celtic Kick): The Phoenix quartet bottles uplifting and spirited messages within sun-burnt Celtic rock sealed by punk energy and desert heat. This approach quietly transformed the group from a local Arizona favorite at countless watering holes to a national Irish festival standout.

SUNSET SUPERSTAR (6:30-7:15 p.m.) – The Sugar Thieves (American Roots Music): The Sugar Thieves have been winning fans with their high energy, soulful live shows since 2006. Moving freely between blues, country, folk, gospel, rock and roll, and elements of jazz, they have honed their unique brand of American roots music to create a sound that is all their own.

NIGHTFALL BEATS (7:30-8:15 p.m.) – The Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra (A 16-strong afrobeat band featuring Camille Sledge): Led by funky heiress, Camille Sledge, the 16-strong orchestra is comprised of the most ambitious and outrageous musicians in Phoenix today. PAO boasts an abundance of original material that melds the eclectic heritage of the ensemble with that classic Afrobeat style. The outcome is a truly powerful sound that pays homage to the masters while maintaining a fierce individuality.

HEADLINER (8:30p – 9:30 p.m.) – Wade Kota Band (Singer-Songwriter and American Idol Finalist): Wade Kota is a singer/songwriter from Phoenix, AZ whose soulful voice earned him a top finalist spot on American Idol in 2019. His sound could best be described as a gritty mix of Indie rock and future base. His soulfulness and passion for his craft is inspired by monody and anything with a heartfelt message.
