About TMF


The Triad is home to a wealth of amazing musicians and songwriters and the music scene is growing faster than the industry can keep up. The Triad Music Festival selects from solo artists, duos, and full bands from all around the Triad and surrounding area. SoundLizzard Productions is committed to showcasing and celebrating local artists through the Triad Music Festival, a weekend celebration that was started in 2012. This year’s TMF will feature three days of festival activities including performances from several artists, a songwriter competition, VIP events, food trucks, and more. View Schedule.

AMPD Expo is in its second year and runs parallel to the Triad Music Festival.
