For Immediate Release
February 11, 2019
Located in the historic train Depot District of uptown Lexington, NC the Depot District Music Fest, to be held at the Breeden Insurance Amphitheater on April 13, will celebrate community, music and the city’s full-steam-ahead progress toward the district’s revitalization. This year’s lineup includes Delbert McClinton, Turnpike Troubadours, Sister Hazel, and The Ultimate Eagles Tribute Band-On The Border.
The inaugural Depot District Music Fest, held in 2017, was a fantastic success featuring the Gin Blossoms and Edwin McCain. In 2018, plans to host the second annual event were de-railed due to the fire at the old Dixie Furniture plant. The 2019 event is sure to build on the momentum created in 2017.
“Lexington is excited to host a talented lineup of performers for an enthusiastic crowd of music lovers at the Breeden Insurance Amphitheater,” said City Manager Terra Greene, who is eager to offer the Depot District Music Fest for a second time. “Being able to see high caliber entertainment perform up close and personal at such a warm outdoor venue is a treat for visitors and the entire community. We look forward to welcoming newcomers to Lexington for the Depot District Music Fest and beyond!”
