The lineup of live entertainment and events at Spring Back to Vail, the annual festival that celebrates the close of the winter season, will ramp up on Thursday, April 12 with a free concert in Ford Park from Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.

Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, who played Spring Back to Vail 2011 to rave reviews, will play a free show in Ford Park on Thursday, April 12, 2012. Named one of the “Best New Bands of 2010” by Rolling Stone and one of VH1's “Artists You Oughta Know,” the band is nearing completion of their fourth studio album, The Lion The Beast The Beat.

The band will be playing in Vail just before their first ever performance at Coachella, and it has been rumored that the band will play songs from their new album at Thursday's show.
