Announcements for the 2013 Arkansas Music Pavilion season got off to a slow start, but venue officials have been churning out new dates lately. Vampire Weekend marks the fifth announcement this month. Alabama Shakes, Queens of the Stone Age, Three Days Grace and Gary Allan were all announced in June.
It’s a strong finish to the lineup this season, which will be the venue’s final set of concerts in Fayetteville. The AMP is set to move to Rogers in 2014.
