There’s nothing like seeing your favorite band live, but one act can only be in so many places at once. Enter, tribute bands! All across the world, tribute bands sing our favorites so that more people can celebrate great live music. This year at Wildflower! Music and Arts Festival, we have dedicated an entire day to these passionate and talented musicians. The following tribute bands will take over the Plaza Stage on Sunday, May 22 starting at 1:45 p.m.:

Cheers for Tears
