Welcome to the Southland Jamboree!

The Southland Jamboree in Lexington, Kentucky is a free bluegrass music concert series that happens weekly during the summer in south Lexington. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and join us for some bluegrass music! Bring your instrument and join in the jam after the show.

Southland Jamboree is moving to MoonDance Amphitheatre in Beaumont Centre!
Mondays at 7:00 pm (all summer)

2015 Season Venue

For the 2015 season, Southland Jamboree will have to move from the Collins Bowling Center property due to construction on the Jamboree grassy field on the Collins property.

We appreciate the support of Collins Bowling over the years and now must find a new location for our summer bluegrass concerts.

We are excited to announce that Southland Jamboree is moving to the MoonDance at Midnight Pass Amphitheatre in Beaumont Centre. We look forward to the excellent permanent stage and sound facilities,  increased audience space and parking, while still not far away from our original space behind Collins Bowling on Southland Drive.

  • Southland Jamboree will be on Monday evenings at 7:00 pm on May 25 (Memorial Day) and through the summer until Labor Day.
  • This is due to MoonDance amphitheater availability (Ecton Park’s Jazz concerts are at MoonDance on Tuesdays)
  • Mondays all summer, in spite of previous announcement reverting to Tuesdays after June.

Because of the uncertainty of this year’s venue until recently (late April), we are just starting to book bands for the 2015 season, but we are confident we will have a full array of bands that our loyal Southland Jamboree fans will love (as usual)!  Stay tuned for schedule information.

The Southland Association is planning a Street Fair and Grand Opening for Saturday May 9, 2015, from 3:00 PM to 8:00 PM to celebrate the new bike lanes on Southland Drive and to kick off the summer.   Two Jamboree-favorite bands are booked for the Street Fair:

  • 5:00 pm – Custom Made Bluegrass
  • 7:00 pm – The Velvet Blue

Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
