It's going to be a big weekend in Royal Oak as Stone Temple Pilots and Rise Against perform at the annual Arts, Beats & Eats festival.

Arts, Beats & Eats is a Labor Day tradition in Oakland County. The four-day event is a celebration of art, music, and food in downtown Royal Oak. The event happened last year but it was very scaled back due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This weekend Arts, Beats & Eats is back with a full line of very diverse acts. This year's lineup will feature over 200 artists that cover a variety of genres including rock, country, blues, jazz and R&B/hip hop, and more.
