Another year means another crazy-ass Zombie Pub Crawl lineup featuring contemporary stars and gleefully nostalgic has-beens. The 12th annual ZPC will have baby-faced “No Type” rap hitmakers Rae Sremmurd, EDM star Zomboy, and former Drake protégé iLoveMakonnen leading the charge. Among the WTF headliners set to entertain the drunk/bloody horde of zombies throughout downtown Minneapolis: TRL faves Ja Rule and Smash Mouth, plus hard-partying rocker and unlikely politician Andrew W.K. Local performers include buzzing MCs Finding Novyon and Bobby Raps, DJs Mike 2600 and Jimmy2Times, and rockers Mark Mallman, the Blind Shake, and Bloodnstuff. Expect three themed stages — the Covered in Blood tribute stage (Pop Rocks, Appetite for Zaccardi, Pleezer), the Metal Stage (Thor, Impaler, Dawn of Valor), and the Ska Stage (Prizefighters, Rocksteady Breakfast, Whiskey City Tango). There’ll be two main outdoor stages and more than 20 bars/venues hosting an estimated 25,000 zombie attendees this year, according to organizers. As always, the event will try to smash its own Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of zombies, currently set at 15,458 from 2014. 21+. 5 p.m. $19.99-$100.
