On Fri., April 28, Levitt Pavilion Arlington will launch the venue’s 2023 live music season, which runs through mid-October, with a pair of free concerts headlined by Even It Up, a Dallas-based Heart tribute band known for their authentic renditions of classic rock hits from legendary rockers Ann and Nancy Wilson.

Opening for Even It Up is Rachel Stacy, a long–running, Texas-based singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and Ray Wylie Hubbard collaborator who has performed at venues across the country.

The following evening (Sat., April 29), the Levitt will host the inaugural DreamFest 2023, a block party-styled, family friendly festival offering free concerts, lawn games, and more.

Artists from a diversity of genres are set to take the stage during the spring leg of the 2023 concert season, which runs through Memorial Weekend. “We have a great mix of returning Levitt favorites and new-to-you artists representing Americana, country, rock, Tejano and more,” said Letatia Teykl, the venue’s executive director.

“All our opening acts highlight musical performers who call North Texas home, as part of the Levitt’s Share The Stage initiative supporting local artists. Since we started this effort in 2021, we’ve booked more than 100 local acts—many of them women artists, emerging artists, and artists of color—for paid gigs on the Levitt stage.”

Most concerts are on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, and generally kick off at 7:30 p.m. Early arrival is encouraged. Check the Levitt website or follow the Levitt at @levittpavillionarlington (Facebook) or @levittarlington (Instagram) for show-specific details. The summer series will kick off Memorial Day weekend and run through July 3; the fall series begins Labor Day weekend and wraps mid-October.

Special events planned for 2023 include Home Grown Arlington (an Arlington Music Friendly Community celebration of local music artists set for June 4); the 2023 Arlington Juneteenth Celebration (in partnership with the Arlington chapter of Phi Beta Sigma, happening June 17); the Light Up Arlington Independence Day Celebration (happening July 3); and a Hispanic Heritage Celebration (happening Sept. 16).

“We’re ready for another exciting season,” said Teykl. “If it’s been a minute since you went to a Levitt concert, or if you’ve yet to discover the Levitt experience, pack up your lawn chairs and head downtown. It’s free, it’s fun, and you won’t be disappointed!”
