X Ambassadors headlining free '97X Bud and Burgers' at Al Lang Stadium in St. Petersburg

Beer, burgers and a day of free music. Not a bad way to spend a summer Saturday, is it?

Alt-rock station 97X is planning big things for its inaugural Bud and Burgers party on June 18 at Al Lang Stadium in St. Petersburg, including a free headlining concert by rising rockers X Ambassadors of Renegades and Unsteady fame.

The event will also features plenty of Budweiser (hence the name) and burgers from Tampa Bay restaurants. None of that will be free -- it'll be buy-as-you-go, or you can pick up a $30 VIP ticket that includes parking, two drink tickets, free appetizers and more.

But the free concert, which starts at 4 p.m. and will include more bands, is a pretty big deal. X Ambassadors will just be coming off a performance at Bonnaroo, and gearing up for performances at Summerfest and Lollapalooza. And simply seeing any live music at picturesque Al Lang seems like a cool opportunity.

To get a free ticket, you'll need to stop by one of the station's ticket drops, which start this weekend. Click here for a list of locations and more details on 97X Bud and Burgers.
