GM River Days is proud to announce our 2016 Line-Up! 

This year’s festival will have music’s biggest names hitting the Quicken Loans National Stage including The B-52’s, the iconic 70’s new wave band on Friday night and two-time Grammy winner and Queen of Pies, Patti Labelle on Saturday evening with special guest 90’s girl group, SWV. R&B powerhouses Mint Condition and Jeffrey Osborne will close out the weekend long celebration on Sunday.  

The Detroit RiverFront Conservancy is thrilled to share the complete national and local music lineup of nearly 50 musicians and bands, including the exciting addition of the Ann Arbor native and blues rocker Laith Al-Saadi, who will perform his first local concert after placing fourth on this season of NBC’s “The Voice.”
