LIVE Island Music at Campus Martius Park Every Friday

The Beach at Campus Martius Park is the ultimate after-work getaway in the heart of Downtown Detroit with a beach party every Friday night throughout the summer. Visitors can catch the sweet sounds of live island music from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. as part of the Marketing Associates Beach Party presented by Absopure.

“We’re excited to be the title sponsor of this year’s Beach Parties in Campus Martius,” said Mark Petroff, President and CEO of Marketing Associates. “What better way to help celebrate MA’s 50th anniversary than to spend Friday evenings on the beach in this beautiful park in the heart of the city?”

Each week, through August 18, a different local artist will play Caribbean-style sounds at The Beach - offering an island atmosphere in the heart of Downtown Detroit.

Upcoming entertainers include the Take No Prisoners Posse on June 23, Universal Xpression on June 30, The Flex Crew from Columbus OH on July 7, Roots Vibration on July 14, Anthem Band on July 21, One Love on Aug. 4, Ken Serious on Aug 11 and Basix on August 18.
