The 70th Maine Lobster Festival runs Wednesday through Sunday, Aug. 2 through 6, in Harbor Park. Seating section tickets are available for this year’s big concerts: Felix Cavaliere’s Rascals Friday; and The Outlaws Saturday, both starting at 7:30 p.m.

Felix Cavaliere was the lead singer, co-songwriter and keyboardist for The (initially Young) Rascals, blue-eyed soul hitmakers for a generation. Fifty years after “Good Lovin’” went to No. 1, Cavaliere performs with a top-notch Nashville-based band of his own Rascals, playing the music folks love to sing.

The Outlaws started a movement of their own 45 years ago as one of the founding fathers of Southern rock. Their Legacy Live 17 tour comes to the Midcoast. Formed in Tampa in 1972, The Outlaws became known for their triple-guitar rock attack and three-part country harmonies, as well as an incendiary live act touring with The Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Marshall Tucker Band and The Charlie Daniels Band (not to mention The Doobie Brothers, The Who, Eagles and The Rolling Stones).

Three dozen years after “Ghost Riders in the Sky” hit the charts, original The Outlaws survivors Henry Paul and Monte Yoho and their new compatriots comprise a Southern band of brothers bound together by the road, paying tribute to The Outlaws’ rich history and its fiery rebirth.

Tickets for seating in the reserved section directly in front of the stage are $25, available at; at the Chamber of Commerce offices in Camden and Rockland; and at the main gate. They include festival admission, which is $1 for all on Wednesday; free for all on Sunday; and $8, $2 for children age 5 to 12 and free for those younger, Thursday through Saturday.
