April 7, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Downtown Johnson City, TN, April 7 th , 2021—Connect Downtown Johnson City announced today that
live music will be returning for thirteen Friday nights to Downtown. Fridays After 5, the free concert
series formerly known as Founders After 5, is back and better than ever.

FA5 is rebranding and relocating to King Commons in 2021. This relocation will not only allow FA5 to
expand but will also allow attendees to social distance. Fridays After 5 will occur most Fridays from 6
PM- 8PM, June-September.

With a wide range of genres, featuring bands from the region, Fridays After 5 is the perfect event for
families, residents, and visitors of all ages. Attendees are encouraged to pick up a to-go order from their
favorite downtown restaurant to enjoy with the live music on the terraced area of King Commons.

Fridays After 5 is a free event funded by local sponsorships. This year’s music is made possible by
sponsors including Cherokee Distributing, BioPure, Highland Brewing, The Local View, Tennessee Hills
Distillery, the Johnson City Development Authority, Blue Plum Organization and many more. If your
business is interested in sponsoring this season’s series or an individual night, please reach out to
Lindsey Jones at jones@downtownjc.com

The public is encouraged to follow Downtown Johnson City on Instagram, Facebook or check the
website, downtownjc.com for the band line ups. Artists will be released in early May.
Connect Downtown Johnson City, formerly known as the Downtown Johnson City Foundation, is the
accredited Main Street organization, whose mission is to foster a thriving downtown ecosystem
