About

Clear your end-of-summer calendar for two nights of music, beer, and water conservancy, because Great Lakes Brewing Co. is proud to announce the 16th annual Great Lakes Burning River Fest August 18 and 19 at the historic Coast Guard Station on Whiskey Island.

Illuminated by the downtown skyline, the Great Lakes Burning River Fest returns to the Cleveland waterfront with one of its best lineups yet. Globetrotting electronica sensation Robert DeLong tops the bill Saturday with his high-energy technicolor show, while Akron-based favorites Wesley Bright & The Honeytones headline Friday with their silky smooth dance grooves and modern soul sound. Two stages of music will light up the Lake Erie shoreline with 16 genre-spanning music acts, while DJ Red-I curates the first Burning River Fest Silent Disco inside the boathouse.

A diverse mix of food trucks will dish out the goods, and since beer and music go hand in hand, Great Lakes Brewing Co. will pour fresh, award-winning brews Burning River Pale Ale, Oktoberfest, Commodore Perry IPA, Turntable Pils, and Rally Drum Red Ale all weekend long.

The best part? Proceeds from all ticket and beer sales benefit clean water initiatives in Northeast Ohio thanks to the efforts of the Burning River Foundation. Help protect our waterways and celebrate summer in Cleveland with live music, food, and refreshing Great Lakes beer.

Tickets for Great Lakes Burning River Fest are available now at www.burningriverfest.org.
