Music in May returns this month after a year hiatus. With four weeks of free concerts at Anthem Community Park beginning May 7, residents can enjoy a different band each Friday in May, from 7–9pm.

Performers will bring a variety of classics and modern favorites to life at the Amphitheater.

Attendees at the free, family-friendly event are encouraged to bring blankets, lawn chairs, picnics and flashlights. Food trucks will be on site for the opening performance to offer concertgoers a variety of dining options.

Music in May is an Anthem favorite and attracts residents and their guests each week.

Anthem Community Council special events manager Debbie Pulido said, “Having to cancel Music in May last year was tough and we know folks missed it. We are so excited to have our events back, and we look forward to seeing our residents again, safely enjoying this fun, outdoor event.”

This year’s lineup includes:
