Charlie Daniels Band, Grand Funk Railroad among bands playing this summer in Madisonville… for free

Some big-name acts are coming to Madisonville this summer.

City officials tells us the Charlie Daniels Band will headline the Fourth Fest on July 4. The event also features a fireworks show.

There will also be three “Friday Night Live” events.

The first one is June 14, but they aren’t quite ready to reveal the name of the act who will be performing.

On July 19, Grand Funk Railroad will headline.

The Gap Band and Sister Sledge will play August 2.

All of the events are free. City officials say the money comes from a restaurant tax that is used to help promote tourism.
