Higher Ground and GRACE POTTER & THE NOCTURNALS are pleased to present the second annual GRAND POINT NORTH FESTIVAL at Burlington’s Waterfront Park on Friday, September 14 and Saturday, September 15th. Gates open at 3pm both days.

Burning up the music scene with sold out concerts across the county, making guest appearances on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Late Show with David Letterman and Conan, blowing minds on VH1’s Divas – everywhere you turn, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals are proving they are a force to be reckoned with. Fresh from the studio after recording their latest full-length album, The Lion The Beast The Beat, co-produced by Potter, Jim Scott, & The Black Keys Dan Auerbach, the band is primed and ready to return to their beloved home state of Vermont.

On April 14 and 21, GPN will make their first-ever appearance at Coachella, which expands to two weekends this year. On June 2, the band will embark on the “Brothers of the Sun” Tour with Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw. GPN’s inclusion on the tour was a result of Grace’s duet with Chesney on their Grammy-nominated and CMA Award-winning single and video “You and Tequila,” which was certified platinum for sales of over one million downloads.

“I’m thrilled to announce that we’ll be bringing the Grand Point North Music Festival back to the Burlington Waterfront! We cut our teeth playing music festivals – but the waterfront is truly one of the most spectacular places we’ve ever performed. We invite you to join us in celebrating a glorious weekend of music & revelry with our dear friends The Avett Brothers! No matter how far away we go, there’s no place like home.” Potter says.
