13th Annual Tunes at Noon Summer Concert Series Announces 2021 Line-Up

After a year-long hiatus due to COVID-19 restrictions, the 13th Annual Tunes at Noon is back with its outdoor summer concert series presented by Downtown Halifax Business Commission (DHBC), in partnership with the African Nova Scotian Music Association, Develop Nova Scotia, Music Nova Scotia, Youth Art Connection, and print media sponsor The Coast. Tunes at Noon recognizes the support of the Province of Nova Scotia. We are pleased to work in partnership with the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage to develop and promote our cultural resources for all Nova Scotians

Nova Scotian performers from all genres of music will perform at a new location on the Salt Yard Stage, Halifax Waterfront, on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, from July 21 to August 27, 2021.

“We are so excited to have Tunes at Noon back after going virtual last year,” said Paul MacKinnon, CEO of Downtown Halifax Business Commission. “We want to welcome workers, visitors, and tourists back to Downtown Halifax.
