The American Tobacco Campus in downtown Durham hosts a variety of free concerts each spring, summer and fall. The fun started with the On the Lawn series of concerts in partnership with WUNC public radio’s Backporch Music Series. That series expanded to the CenterStage series which moved to the lawn between American Tobacco and the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC) to accommodate growing crowds.
In 2013, American Tobacco added two Art of Cool @ the Stack 4-concert series on Thursdays and the Midweek Music on Wednesdays. These concert series are free and open to the public, highlighting food and drink from American Tobacco’s top-quality restaurants and the best music in the Triangle.
