Harrisburg University Presents announces its full Summer Concert Series in Riverfront Park lineup for 2022.

Live music back — and let’s say it, better than ever — in Harrisburg.

Harrisburg University just announced its full Summer Concert Series lineup. This series takes place in Riverfront Park, along Front St., in downtown Harrisburg.

And if you thought the previous years’ lineups were good, this one is even better.

Here’s what’s on the docket:

Harrisburg University Presents Summer Concert Series

Death Cab for Cutie | July 14

Death Cab returns to Harrisburg to kick off the series this year. This stop is part of the band’s Asphalt Meadows Tour. Opening for them is special guest Illuminati Hotties.

The Roots | July 15

Whoa. Yes, that’s right. The Roots (Uh, Jimmy Fallon’s house band for you youngins) is the very next night in downtown Harrisburg. The Roots are music icons, and this show is a can’t-miss. Fun fact: The Roots are originally from Philadelphia.

SoMa Harrisburg | S. Third St.

Stop by SoMa before you head down to the concert

Kaleo | Aug. 17

In August, Kaleo brings its Fight or Flight Tour to Harrisburg. The band recently sold out famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, so grab your tickets now. Kaleo brings opener White Reaper.

Lany | Aug. 19

Just two day later, LANY cements that surf vibe with its Summer Forever Tour. The opener is Surfaces, which I am personally obsessed with.

Lord Huron | Aug. 20

Lord Huron closes out August’s shows in Riverfront Park. The opener for Lord Huron is special guest First Aid Kit.

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats | Sept. 20

If there was just one concert for me to choose from this lineup it’s Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats. I own 2-3 of their albums (like the actual vinyl). Along this tour, catch special guest Hiss Golden Messenger.

The National | Sept. 24

Wrapping up Harrisburg University Presents Summer Concert Series is The National.

Which show are you most excited to see? You can grab tickets to all of them here.

Plus, I’m excited to partner with Harrisburg University Presents to share info about the series and give away tickets to each show!


What else is new for 2022

In addition to an expansive lineup of live music, Harrisburg University Presents also snagged Tröegs Independent Brewing as a partner for this year’s Summer Concert Series. You’ll find Tröegs beers flowing at their pop-up location in Riverfront Park.

Harrisburg University is also partnering with local food trucks for each event. Make a night of it and enjoy amazing national recording artists in downtown Harrisburg!
