Common Ground is an annual celebration along the banks of the Grand River in Adado Riverfront Park in downtown Lansing. Now in its 12th year, the festival draws over 80,000 people across 7 nights and has showcased over 300 artists including 36 Grammy Award winners and 21 Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame inductees.
The festival features an amazing slate of musical acts with a focus on top-level, national, contemporary music performers and some of the best regional musicians backed by state-of-the-art production. Add a variety of family entertainment and an assortment of food vendors and you can see why one of the Capital City’s summer highlights. Day passes are available and they also offer a 7-Day Pass that can be shared with family or friends from day to day. At (currently) 7 nights for $79 it’s a heck of a deal!
