CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Pack your dancing shoes and prepare to sing along to the new sound of summer! We’re less than two weeks away from Chesterfield LIVE!, a brand-new music festival, happening Saturday, May 25 at the Chesterfield County Fairgrounds, located at 10300 Courthouse Road. Gates open at 2:30 p.m. and music starts at 3 p.m.

This free, family-friendly event hosted by Chesterfield County, in partnership with the Richmond Symphony and the Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce, will feature four premier musical acts, all performing under the Symphony’s iconic “Big Tent.” So, get ready to “Shake It Off” and “Move Your Feet” to the sounds of Chesterfield LIVE!

  • 4 p.m. - RVA's Dance Candy, the polished 6-pack of musicians coming from the vibrant VCU music scene and covers everything from 70s funk to hip hop and R&B.
  • 5:30 p.m. - Richmond Symphony, seventy professional musicians with a stunning repertoire who will be playing songs from Star Trek and Titanic to name just a few.
  • 7 p.m. - The Deloreans, the seasoned show band who will end the night bringing new life to all your favorite songs from the 80's.

Keeping the crowd entertained during set changes are well-known Richmond DJ Lonnie B and Coffee with Strangers host Kelli Lemon.
