Britt heats up for summer concerts

Tickets for Britt Festivals summer concert season at the Britt Pavilion in Jacksonville will be available to the general public starting Friday, May 13. Tickets can be purchased online at the box office, 216 W. Main St., Medford, online at brittfest.org or by calling 541-773-6077 or 800-882-7488. Britt’s box office is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Britt's festivities kick off Saturday, June 4, with the annual Taste of Summer celebration in downtown Jacksonville. From noon to 4:30 p.m., visitors can look for wine tastings, live music, art, food, street performers and family activities at the free event.

Concerts begin Thursday, June 16, with Slightly Stoopid, joined by Zion I, The Grouch, Eligh and Grammy-winning band SOJA.

Electric blues rockers Eric Burdon and the Animals, with openers The Weight, will follow Friday, June 17; then rock band Chicago comes Tuesday, June 21; and Mississippi rock band 3 Doors Down plays Wednesday, June 22.

On Thursday, June 30, the festival will host its Best of Britt benefit — a gala of food and wines from local restaurants and wineries, a silent auction full of concert packages, topped off with a concert with Lyle Lovett and his Large Band. All-inclusive tickets for this event are available, as well as tickets to the concert only.
