(Turner) Jimmy Buffett, KISS and The Black Keys are set to headline the 2012 NCAA Big Dance Concert Series, in New Orleans in conjunction with the 2012 NCAA Men's Final Four.

The free, three-day music festival is produced by Turner Sports and the NCAA, and will take place at Woldenberg Park in New Orleans during the 2012 NCAA Men's Final Four weekend.

Additional artists performing at the 2012 NCAA Big Dance Concert Series include special guest Blondie, the Avett Brothers, New Orleans legend Dr. John, the Funky Meters, Big Sam's Funky Nation, Cowboy Mouth and Vintage Trouble. The specific time of each performance and final overall schedule will be available soon at NCAA.com/FinalFour.

The Big Dance Concert Series tips off Friday evening of Final Four weekend, March 30 with KISS headlining the Block Party.

KISS remains one of the most influential bands in the history of rock and roll. As one of America's top gold-record champions, KISS has released 44 albums and sold more than 90 million albums worldwide. Decades of record-breaking tours around the globe have included high-profile appearances at Super Bowl XXXIII, the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, the Rockin' The Corps concert dedicated to U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, and special guest appearance on the 2009 American Idol finale that boasted 30 million viewers.

The party will continue into Saturday, March 31 with the Countdown featuring The Black Keys. The Black Keys' new album, El Camino, released December 6 on Nonesuch Records, debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and has already been certified RIAA Gold. The duo was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine earlier this year, for the first time (January 19 issue). In celebration of the release, the band have embarked on the first leg of their North American tour this month, featuring sold-out shows at Chicago's United Center, DC's Verizon Center, and two nights at New York's Madison Square Garden followed by a second batch of April dates, including shows at Austin's Frank Erwin Center and Seattle's Key Arena. Special guests Arctic Monkeys open on the tour.
