Birmingham’s new music festival, Euphonious, is set to bring live music and good vibes to the Birmingham Zoo’s massive brand-new concert lawn on Father’s Day weekend.

A total of 12 bands are set to perform at the inaugural event, including Drew and Ellie Holcombe, Moon Taxi, Tonic and Sister Hazel. Fans will be able to watch the acts from the recently renovated Henley Park Lawn.

You might not believe it at first, but Euphonious is an actual word. It means “pleasing to the ear,” which is perfect for the name of a festival focused upon music.

Two types of tickets are available for this event. One will get you a 10-by-10-foot square that will allow up to eight attendees to set up lawn chairs and enjoy the night. The other ticket is for standing room and will allow attendees to stand in designated areas to watch the performances.
