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.
