Returning to Chautauqua for their third appearance, The Avett Brothers made mainstream waves in 2009 with their major label debut, I and Love and You, landing at No. 16 on the Billboard Top 200 and garnering critical acclaim. Since that time, their album True Sadness (2016) has achieved The Avett Brothers’ highest career debut to date hitting No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Albums Chart, No. 1 Top Rock Albums Chart, No. 1 Digital Albums Chart, No. 3 on Billboard Top 200, and scoring two GRAMMY ® nominations.

In 2017, the band released their critically acclaimed documentary, May It Last: A Portrait of The Avett Brothers. The film was released theatrically and on HBO to rave reviews, was shown at Chautauqua in 2018, and is now available on DVD/Blu-Ray/VOD. In November 2018, the band headlined a concert for Hurricane Florence Relief in Greenville, North Carolina, raising $325,000 to help those affected. Their newest album, Closer Than Together, was released on October 4, 2019. Additionally, a new musical inspired by and featuring the music of The Avett Brothers, Swept Away, will have its world premiere at Berkeley Repertory Theatre in June 2020.

“That moment in a concert we experience only one time. Once. Then it’s over. Gone. Poof.” —The Avett Brothers

Introducing Pop-up on the Plaza

Building upon the popularity of the annual end-of-summer Chautauqua Food Festival, and in response to requests for additional food and beverage service options and capacity, Chautauqua is pleased in 2021 to introduce the Pop-up on the Plaza, a fun and relaxing food and beverage experience before selected concerts.

Before you take your seat in the Amphitheater for an unparalleled concert experience, join your fellow concertgoers in our covered outdoor lounge on Bestor Plaza for conversation and concessions, including drinks and light fare from a rotating roster of food trucks or a special concert menu at the Brick Walk Cafe. On-grounds restaurants have been invited to participate in the experience as well.

Through the Pop-up on the Plaza, we aim to enhance the concert experience of all Chautauquans and to create a fun and welcoming environment for new visitors and concert-goers who aren’t residing on the grounds. As a pilot project, the Pop-ups will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. on selected dates.
