Friday, June 8

Expect dancing. Michael Franti and Spearhead are back at Britt to open this summer’s slate of concerts at 8 p.m. Friday, June 8.

Franti’s socially conscious mix of hip-hop, funk, reggae, folk, and rock has proven popular with two previous appearances on the Britt hillside and some at other Rogue Valley venues, including the Historic Ashland Armory and Jackson Wellsprings. Promoters know his music will move people, so there’s no blanket seating in front of the stage to make way for dancing.

The show is sold out.

Head to Franti's website,, for information about his latest CD, "Yell Fire!," his book "Food for the Masses: Michael Franti — Portraits & Lyrics" and a documentary film "I Know I'm Not Alone," which chronicles his travels in war zones of Iraq, Israel and Palestine.
