CityFest finalizes musical lineup for 2019

By NEAL WAGNER / Managing Editor

ALABASTER – The Alabaster Arts Council has finalized its lineup for this year’s Alabaster CityFest, bringing in a wide range of musical acts from several different genres.

In mid-March, the Arts Council announced the event’s headliner will be country music artist Easton Corbin, who will take the stage at 9 p.m. and play until about 10:30 p.m. The Atlanta Rhythm Section will take the stage at 7 p.m. as the festival’s opening headliner.

Atlanta Rhythm Section is well-known for its 1977 single “So in to You,” which reached the U.S. Top 10 when it was released. The group’s album “Champagne Jam” went platinum, fueled by its standout single “Imaginary Lover.”

The 2019 CityFest will be held on June 1 on the grounds of the new Thompson High School at 1921 Warrior Parkway. Title sponsors for this year’s CityFest are Central State Bank and Coca-Cola.

This will mark the second-straight year the event has been held on the campus of the new THS, and this year will bring an easier traffic flow, as the campus is now accessible from both Thompson Road and Kent Dairy Road.

The event begins at 9 a.m., and will feature a cruise-in car show from 9 a.m.-2 p.m., vendors from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. or later and musical performances on the main stage directly in front of the THS rotunda.

The following is the full musical lineup for this year’s CityFest:
