When it comes to the Food Lion Speed Street event that's held in the heart of Uptown each year, most people will pay attention to the headliners on the music stages and little else. Hopefully, some will give the locals a chance this time around because there are plenty of them.
Among those playing on the Miller Lite Stage on Friday, May 22, are Simplified at 5:45 p.m. and the Miller Lite's Great Taste Music Series Rock Champion Otherwoods at 7:15 p.m. On that same stage on Saturday, May 23, are Third Place Winners S.O. Stereo at 2 p.m., Brit Price at 4 p.m. and Runners Up Another Day Falls at 6 p.m.
The Coca-Cola Stage is mostly made up of national and regional acts, but locals Contagious Blues Band will peform there on Saturday, May 23, at 1:45 p.m.
If you're heading to Uptown to check out some of the vendors and music, make sure you give the locals a chance. It's great they're sharing the stage with well-known performers and they can use all the support you can give. For more information, visit www.600festival.com.
