PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- An all-day music festival could be heading to the Eastern Promenade in Portland next summer. Although, it's unknown who the headlining acts would be.
According to our media partners at Portland Press Herald, Townsquare Media Portland will ask the city council to approve the festival for sometime in Portland.
The proposal said the artists will be selected soon after the city council approves closing off part of the Eastern Prom and the date will be one Townsquare Media and the city agree on.
There was a music festival that Mumford and Sons headlined back in 2012 with about 15-thousand people.
Townsquare Media Portland said it expects about 8-thousand people at this music festival.
About two-thirds of the hillside area would be fenced and gated. That's less than the area that was blocked off in 2012.
