The series kicks off Thursday, August 5 with the 84th show headlined by Boot Juice, a seven-piece folk band with a horn section, three-part harmonies, and two guitarists.

Live at Lakeview is a free weekly concert series that began in 2012. The popular series typically begins on the first Thursday of summer and ends around Labor Day. After a year and a half of COVID restrictions, free concerts return with five events held at Lakeview Commons.

“After a year and a half of not being able to produce concerts for our community, it’s a great thing to see live music making a comeback,” On Course Events Marketing Director Leslie Schultz said in a press release. “The support we have received from our sponsors and event suppliers has made this short season of events possible. We are so grateful to this community and excited to once again offer free shows on the beach.

Every Thursday, from August 5 to September 2, the event will host live music and art on the beach, as well as a variety of local vendors and delicious new food truck options, as well as seating amphitheater style and stunning views of Lake Tahoe from the beer. garden. Proceeds from the beer garden will benefit the South Tahoe BMX Association.
