PHOENIX — The Gilbert Days Music Festival is scheduled to debut at Gilbert Regional Park on Nov. 19-20.

Performers set to play at the event, which runs from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. each day, include The Instant Classics, Piano Men Generations, Georgia Chrome and Desert Dixie.

Attendees are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets to sit and enjoy live music, as well as bug spray and water.

Single-day tickets cost $5 for people ages 13 through Nov. 18, and $10 on the days of the festival. Admission for children 12 years and under is free but still requires a ticket.

There’s an extra fee for children 12 and under to access to inflatables in the kids zone.

Food and drink vendors on site will only accept card payments for the cashless event.
