3 Doors Down to perform at Festival of the Lakes

3 Doors Down will play Hammond's Festival of the Lakes this year.

Take a walk around the world to ease your troubled mind, because 3 Doors Down is going to play Hammond’s Festival of the Lakes this year.

The multi-platinum alternative rock band dates back to the 1990s and hit it big during the early 2000s with singles like “Kryptonite” and “Loser.”

“Very pumped to announce Festival of the Lakes main stage on Thursday, July 18th, Grammy Award-nominated multiplatinum Mississippi rock band 3 Doors Down to perform at the city of Hammond,” Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. tweeted.

3 Doors Down joins Nelly as a nightly headliner at Festival of the Lakes, the annual celebration of Lake Michigan, Wolf Lake and Lake George. It will take place between Wednesday, July 17 and Sunday, July 21 at the Pavilion at Wolf Lake or PAV at 2324 Calumet Ave. in Hammond.

The rock band topped the charts during much of the 2000s and early 2010s with hits like “Here Without You," “When I’m Gone" and "When You're Young."

“The festival will be rocking at full blast,” McDermott posted on Facebook. “With the last two decades of unlimited tunes and sold out shows, these legends of rock will help to make the 2019 Festival one of our best ever.”

3 Doors Down, which is currently on tour, has played at many high-profile venues, including the Winter Olympics, a National Hockey League All-Star Game and a National Scout Jamboree. The band has toured with many high-profile acts like Collective Soul, ZZ Top, Soul Asylum, Daughtry and Gretchen Wilson. Its music was featured on the American Pie 2 soundtrack.

Festival of the Lakes concerts are free, but parking on-site costs $25.

The festival also includes beer gardens, food vendors, and a carnival, as well as related events like a 5K and fishing derby.
