Eight musical acts will perform Friday at the Highlander Music Fest. The one-day festival marks this week’s announcement of the renewal of the Highland Coffees’ lease.

The multi-genre music festival follows online and in-person movements to keep Highland Coffees open. An online petition in support of the 25-year-old Chimes Street business drew more than 5,000 signatures.

The all-ages, free Highlander Music Fest runs from 4 p.m. through midnight inside and outside Highland Coffees. A free after party featuring music by Nice Dog and The Viridian Sons is scheduled at neighboring venue The Library at Northgate.
