Rihanna, Zac Brown Band to headline free Final Four concerts

March 16, 2015

The sounds of bouncing basketballs and squeaking sneakers will be complemented by the sound of music—specifically, the tunes of Rihanna and Zac Brown Band.

The NCAA has announced that a three-day music festival will accompany the NCAA Final Four festivities in Indianapolis with free concerts to be held at White River State Park on April 3-5.

Admission to the concerts will be open to the public on a first-come/first-served basis. Don't want to brave the crowds? For the first time, all NCAA March Madness Music Festival concerts will be live streamed at www.ncaa.com/musicfest. A portion of Rihanna's set will also be broadcast on TBS, TNT and TruTV between the semifinal games on April 4.

Festivities on April 3 will inclue the "AT&T Block Party," with performers still to be announced. Rihanna and the band Bleachers will perform on April 4 during a full day of music, scheduled for noon to 9:30 p.m. and branded as the Coke Zero Countdown Concert.

The April 5 concerts, scheduled for 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. and dubbed Capital One Jam Fest, will include Zac Brown Band, Lady Antebellum, and Kacey Musgraves.
