Concert goers enjoy a balcony view during a "Vampire Weekend" concert at White Oak Music Hall in 2019. The venue is hosting a concert next week as part of a nationwide summer music tour.

A summer music festival is back for its third annual tour, and a popular Height-area entertainment venue is one of its stops this year.

The third annual Sad Summer Music Festival is set to kick off on Friday, a news release from the festival said. It will consist of 18 live shows around the country through Aug. 8 – including its first-ever show on the Lawn at White Oak Music Hall, 2915 N. Main St., on July 13.

Mayday Parade will be one of the co-headlining bands, as will Houston-based band Waterparks and UK-based group Neck Deep, according to a press release from the festival. Also performing will be State Champs, The Summer Set, Lolo, Games We Play, and more.

The tour is sponsored by Journeys, a specialty retail brand that sells apparel, shoes, and more.

“Connecting with our consumers and employees through live music events has always been a huge part of our identity as a brand,” Journey senior vice president of marketing Kari Irons said. “The ongoing partnership between Sad Summer Fest and Journeys has allowed us to come together to create a memorable and safe experience for fans that were missing live music and the face to face connection with their favorite artists.”

General admission tickets for the show are $45 pre-order and $49 on the day of the event. There are also VIP tickets available for $99.
