“Our NCAA Corporate Champions AT&T, Coke Zero and Capital One have really brought a strong lineup to Indianapolis for the March Madness Music Festival as the lineups offer fans a wide range of musical talent this year,” said Keith Martin, NCAA managing director of marketing and broadcast alliances. “We encourage people to get to the park early to scout out the spot they want since the concert is free and as they have to go through security and safety procedures to enter the park. We anticipate good crowds all weekend.”
