We also want to thank the City of Champaign - Municipal Government - without their support, Friday Night Live would not be possible!

Downtown Champaign is the backdrop for 40 North's Friday Night LIVE, a free street-side performance series open to the general public. Friday Night Live, in its 9th year, is presented through the generosity of Pour Bros. Craft Taproom, Busey Bank, and the City of Champaign, with support from Champaign Center Partnership and the CU Folk and Roots Festival.

Friday Night Live is held from 6-8pm every Friday from June through August. Performances are held at the intersections of Neil & Church, Neil & Park, and Market & Taylor in Downtown Champaign.

Friday Night Live includes an eclectic mix of music and street performances including bluegrass, jazz, folk, soul, rock, country, and blues, along with a free kids' activity every week.

If you are a local performer interested in being a part of Friday Night LIVE, please contact Kelly White at 217.351.9841, or All types of performances and collaborations are welcome!
