Last year’s Nightfall winner, We Are Us (band), did not have the opportunity to perform their full live set since the concert series was virtual in 2020 due to COVID.
The remainder of the live shows in June will feature only local artists with two bands performing each night.
• Emily Kate Boyd
• Ben VanWinkle and The Figment
• Rick Rushing
• Davey Smith

In its 34th season, Nightfall is Chattanooga’s longest running outdoor concert series and in addition to great music, will feature food trucks, local artisan vendors and lawn games in Miller Park.
Immediately following the Nightfall concert performances this year, the Lookout Wild Film Festival will be showing an hour of free short adventure films in Miller Park.
A spokesperson for Lookout Wild Film Festival stated, “Out of concern for our attendees and as an opportunity to share wild places and the people they inspire with a new audience in Chattanooga, we have arranged for LWFF 2021 to take place along with the Nightfall Music Series!”
Instead of 15 hours of films in one weekend, LWFF is breaking the films up into 15 1-hour blocks to be shown right after Nightfall on the screen in Miller Park. The films will run from approximately 9:45 p.m. until 10:45 p.m. every Friday night from June 4 to September 10.
