HU decided to follow the lead of other music venues and festivals around the country, opting to schedule shows for August and September. Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Cage the Elephant, Dawes and Portugal. The Man are slated to perform at Harrisburg’s Riverfront Park. HU also plans to have shows throughout the fall, Schofield said.
