I'm definitely not a music festival connoisseur, but I'm pretty sure I've never heard of a festival quite like this before.

One-of-a-Kind Minnesota Music Festival

First of all, this festival has 6 stages. I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure most other music festivals have half that many.

Second of all, each of those stages is at its own, unique venue. And each of those venues is a local business, so at each spot you decide to stop, you're supporting local.

And don't worry, you're not driving to Timbuktu to see different acts, they're all in one area of town.
