Rib, White and Blue — Akron’s National Rib Festival, brings good food and a wide range of entertainment to Downtown Akron for a Fourth of July celebration that runs through July 6 on South Main Street in front of Lock 3, which is located at 200 S. Main St. Admission to the festival and the concerts is free. Here is the weekend schedule:

The Lock 3 stage will rock with Elevation, The International U-2 Tribute Show on Friday, July 5. The music begins at 6 p.m. with the Jim Gill Band. Gill, from Northeast Ohio, is known to fans for his original acoustic folk music. Elevation will take the stage at 8:30 p.m. The Toronto-based band plays music made famous by the Irish band and its lead singer, Bono. The playlist is likely to include some of U2’s most popular songs, such as “Beautiful Day,” “With or Without You” and “New Year’s Day.”

On Saturday, July 6, the festival concludes with the Joe Vitale Jr. Band
 at 6 p.m., followed by The Machine Performs Pink Floyd 
at 8:30 p.m. Vitale, who blends a mix of instruments and industrial influences into his rock sound, is the son of veteran rock and roll drummer Joe Vitale. The Machine has a playlist that mixes songs from Pink Floyd's many albums. The Machine's most recent CD, “Symphonic Side of the Moon,” a rendition of Pink Floyd's “Dark Side of the Moon,” is performed with a full symphony orchestra and includes “Speak to Me,” “On the Run” and “Money.”
