Kenny Chesney’s Goin’ Coastal tour hits FedEx Field in just two weeks, but a new set of premium tickets just went on sale through Ticketmaster. The just-released “sand bar” passes put fans in a standing area right in front of the stage. Zac Brown Band is co-headlining the June 4 show; Billy Currington and Uncle Kracker are opening.

The IDentity festival—featuring electronic acts such as Steve Aoki, Kaskade, and the Crystal Method—arrives at Jiffy Lube Live on August 18. Tickets ($34 to $94) are on sale Friday at 10 AM through LiveNation.

Lil Wayne returns to Washington on July 16, when he’ll perform at Jiffy Lube Live along with Rick Ross, Keri Hilson, Far East Movement, and Lloyd. Tickets ($35.75 to $105.75) are on sale Friday at 10 AM through LiveNation.

Starting on Friday at 10 AM, you’ll be able to snag seats for many summer shows at the Birchmere. Some highlights include Julia Fordham and Paul Reiser (July 25), Joan Osborne (August 3), and Justin Townes Earle (August 20). Tickets are available through Ticketmaster.

HFStival is returning to Merriweather Post Pavilion, but with a very different lineup than last year’s ’90s-focused billing. This year, the September 17 festival will feature performances by the Avett Brothers, Flogging Molly, and the Gin Blossoms. Tickets ($35 to $50) go on sale Friday at 10 AM through Ticketfly.

Also stopping by Merriweather this fall are singer/songwriters Ray LaMontagne and Brandi Carlile, who will perform at the Columbia amphitheater on September 29. Tickets ($40 to $55) are on sale Friday at 10 AM through Ticketfly.
