Event Details

We’re beyond excited to announce the first lineup of the Summer on the MOCAD Homestead series!

Summer on the MOCAD Homestead is our way of bringing some of our favorite bands to fans right here in Detroit. And the experience couldn’t be more idyllic — the stage sits on the lawn of the MOCAD, adjacent to Mike Kelley's Homestead... So sprawl out on the lawn + soak up the magick of the evening.

This series is produced by El Club + MOCAD. In addition to music, the museum will be open late night + there will be a hearty roster of local food vendors, craft vendors and more surprises.. 

Check out the series line-up below and start planning your summer of music! All shows are all-ages and shows will go on rain or shine. Parking is available but limited, so we recommend carpooling if you can.

June 29th: Princess Nokia

July 22nd: Raphael Saadiq

August 24th: Tank + The Bangas

September 28th: Deerhunter
