By Beth Milligan | April 13, 2018

Country star Reba McEntire, the Beach Boys, Blondie, comedian Jim Gaffigan, and Steve Martin with Martin Short are among the headliners slated to play this summer's Interlochen Arts Festival at Interlochen Center for the Arts.

The full lineup of summer concerts and events, released today (Friday), also includes Interlochen Presents: Interlochen Contemporary, a summer-long program that "celebrates the art and artists who influenced the evolution of dance, music and more from 1945 to the present," according to Interlochen. "This includes performances by the Koresh Dance Company, pianist Sarah Cahill, members of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, and much more." New also this year is Premier Parking for all Kresge Auditorium performances. A section of parking areas will be set aside for guests, with a shuttle service to and from the venue offered at an additional cost.
