Lightning 100 Toasts All Things Nashville With Seventh Annual Block Party

Lightning 100 and Project 615 are teaming up to celebrate all things Nashville with their seventh annual 615 Day on June 15. The day-long block party on Fatherland and 11th Street in East Nashville will feature food trucks, local vendors, and live music, and Lightning 100 will take their ONErpm studio on the road and broadcast live from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. at The Pavilion East, spinning Nashville artists exclusively all day on 100.1 FM and Lightning100.com.

Local artists including Moon Taxi, The Wild Feathers, Will Hoge, Omega Swan, Paul McDonald and more will perform throughout the day at the party, which started in 2011 with Lightning 100’s original concept to feature programming dedicated to local music from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for one entire day. Since then, the city has adopted the “holiday” as its own, and the day has expanded to an entire day featuring all-local programming, celebrating Nashville events, and spotlighting local businesses and non-profits.

“Overall, one of our initiatives as a local station is to help Nashville artists. The Local Lightning Spotlight started in 2005 and was one of the first official programming features we implemented to highlight local music. It started with spinning a few local artists a day and that began the excitement both from our staff and our listeners,” said Gary Kraen, VP Programming and Operations.
