Hiatus was a solid pop dance band that played songs by Foreigner, Walk the Moon, Michael Jackson and Pink.

Do-Wah Riders played both country and western music, with a list of songs that included favorites from Kenny Chesney, Dwight Yoakim, Jake Owens and Creedence Clearwater Revival with violin and accordion touches.

DJ Lance Rock’s “Yo Gabba Gabba” by Nick Jr., featuring a new children’s show at Knott’s: kept the party moving with dance tunes between live music ensembles.

Bands and DJs took turns touring the park’s Charleston Fountain area in a music festival-style setting that serves as the focal point for Knott’s Summer Nights event.

The Knott’s Summer Nights festival area is set up like a barbecue in a back garden on a large expanse of artificial grass with pub-style games like cornhole and ring a tour.
