From a tube or from the shore, the coolest seat in town is at Panther Island Pavilion for the seventh season of Rockin' the River.

Rockin’ the River is back and ready to ramp up your summer.

The popular music and tubing series, in its seventh year, is back at Panther Island Pavilion and is making the switch from an extended happy hour on Thursday to an all-day Saturday party. With five bands and a fireworks show each week, it can be enjoyed from a tube or the shaded shore.

Each week, gates open at 1 p.m. with five bands playing back-to-back sets beginning about 2:15 p.m. on the Coors Light Waterfront Stage. After the headlining band finishes at 8:15 p.m., the party moves to the shore with the fifth band playing until 9:15 p.m. on the Pacifico Stage.

In addition to live music on two stages, food and beverage options will be available for purchase, as well as tube and watersport rentals. Each event ends with a fireworks show on the banks of the Trinity River.

Thirty bands over the six-week music series will perform, including top Texas country artists and, new this year, a little rock and soul sprinkled in the mix each week.

Headliner Zane Williams kicks off the festival series on July 1. Other acts throughout the summer include Prophets and Outlaws, Shane Smith and the Saints, Zac Wilkerson, and more.
