Busch Gardens Williamsburg is bringing back its Summer Nights Live concert series.

The concert series will begin June 28 at the park’s Globe Theatre, Busch Gardens announced in a news release.

The series is presented by Coca-Cola and features some acts from NBC-TV’s America’s Got Talent and Britain’s Got Talent.

Park members and annual passholders older than 21 can get free beer as well.

Here’s the lineup and description from Busch Gardens:

  • Light Balance: June 28 to July 7 (daily performances): This hi-tech neon LED dance group wows audiences with a unique show that unifies all of the senses.
  • Boogie Storm: July 8 to 14 (daily performances): Dressed head to toe in iconic white outfits, the six members of Boogie Storm perform crushing dance routines.
  • The Passing Zone: July 15 to 21 (daily performances): Juggling is tough enough with scarves, balls or pins, but this dynamic duo takes juggling to the next level.
  • William Close & The Earth Harp Collective: July 22 to 28 (daily performances): This talented ensemble pushes the boundaries of the performance experience while exploring the connection between architecture and music.
  • Fighting Gravity: July 29 to Aug. 4 (daily performances): Originated at Virginia Tech, Fighting Gravity’s play on light and levitation has gained worldwide attention.
  • Freckled Sky: Aug. 5 to 11 (daily performances): These multimedia artists tell stories and bring immersive experiences to the viewer by blending projection, lightning, interactive solutions and special effects.

Spark will also perform on select nights at the Royal Palace Theatre, featuring party-starters, laser lights, pyrotechnics, and a custom soundtrack created by award-winning musicians, Busch Gardens said.

Each Friday, Saturday and Sunday night from June 28 to Sept. 1 will finish with a fireworks show at 9:30 p.m.
