Apex Music Festival is Back on September 15, 2018

Apex Music FestivalThe Apex Music Festival, formerly the Apex Jazz Music Festival, is back in Downtown Apex for the 8th time on Saturday, September 15 from 3:00pm to midnight. Click on the logo to visit the website for more information.

This year, the arrangement of venues will be entirely different from the previous years’ events. Three outdoor stages and one indoor theater will host all of the acts, and these will be located around the parking area behind the Salem Street Promenade and Tobacco & Mule exchange buildings across from the Apex Chamber of Commerce and the fire station. The parking area will be used for the event only and will be closed for parking.

Apex Music FestivalThe Apex Music Festival will continue its tradition of playing host to great musicians from around North Carolina and beyond, featuring local, regional and national performers from many musical genres, including Rock, Folk, R&B, Blue Grass, Country, Pop and Americana and more. As usual, there will be a great selection of local food vendors to choose from in addition to our great Downtown Apex restaurants.

Admission to the festival is required through General Admission or VIP Ticket Purchases. Pre-sale General Admission starts at $15.00. All festival attendees must wear approved wrist bands. Children 16 and under are free but still must wear wristbands. Anyone not wearing a festival wristband will be asked to get one. This is different from previous year’s events – before this year, the Music Festival was a pub crawl type of event and an admission fee was charged only if entering the main stage / beer garden.

Check out the Apex Music Festival website for up-to-date info and the lineup of bands. Tickets are also available online right now for just $15!
