Hoolie Fest 2011
Now in its second year, Shuga Records' two-stage music festival, timed to take place during Northeast's Art-A-Whirl, has expanded into a diverse and overflowing lineup of over 75 Minnesota bands. From Current darlings like Communist Daughter (pictured), Phantom Tails, and Hastings 3000 to hip-hop stalwarts Unknown Prophets, Muja Messiah, and Maria Isa to astute singer-songwriters Brianna Lane and Jennifer Markey, there's a little something for everyone on Hoolie Fest's bill this year, and the schedule is laid out to encourage trips in and out throughout the entire weekend. With the Nightinghales, Chickadee Mountain Martyrs, Chemistry Set, Lucy Michelle & the Velvet Lapelles, Grant Cutler, and many more. All ages. (Photo by Ben Clark)
