After a two-year delay, Live on King Street is coming back this summer.

According to an announcement from Majestic Madison Monday, the event is going to be “bigger than ever” as it is moving to the 100 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

Live on “King Street” is a free live music series that started in 2011. Since then, apart from the past two years, the Majestic has hosted free concerts for Madisonians.

This year there will be five free shows all starting at 7 p.m.

There will be two shows in June. June 10 features The High Hawks with Dead Horses and Long Mama and June 24 is called “Live on QUEEN Street” as it will be a drag and dance block party. Bianca Lynn Breeze is hosting, Joey Jay of Ru Paul’s Drag Race will make an appearance and Kat and the Hurricane and Falling Flat will perform.

Tank and the Bangas with Kainalu will be on stage July 15. White Denim with Interlay are performing July 19. The last show will be September 16 with Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Rare Element and Mae Simpson as the musical guests.
