Kid Dakota, Mayda, Bloodnstuff lead Lyn-Lake Street Fest lineup
With the recent spate of nice weather, you can forgive Twin Cities music fans for letting their minds wander to the outdoor music season. And, with the string of great local street festivals and events planned for next month, you might just wish that May would hurry up and get here already.
Add the 4th Annual Lyn-Lake Street Fest on Sunday, May 20 to the growing list of can't miss concert events, as the free outdoor festival on Lyndale Avenue has once again assembled a fantastic and diverse local music line-up that is sure to be a guaranteed good time for music lovers of all types, while also raising money for the local YWCA and Joyce Food Shelter in the process.
This year's Lyn-Lake Fest will have two main stages back-to-back on the Greenway bridge between 28th Street and Lake Street, which will give the crowd better views of the action during a full day of non-stop music, with each of the bands playing 45 minute sets. The event should help bring attention and revenue to the many unique businesses in the Lyn-Lake area, while strengthening the sense of community that is at the heart of that eclectic neighborhood.
Festivities for the free festival kick-off at noon on May 20, and run until 7 p.m. In addition to the bands listed below, there will be two very special guests that will also be announced soon. Summit beer is providing refreshments of the of-age festival attendees, while Ian Rans of Drinking With Ian will be the host of the all-day affair. Based on the strong line-up and distinct location of the festival, Lyn-Lake promises to be one of the many highlight's of the local outdoor concert season here in the Twin Cities.
Here is the list of performers for this year's Lyn-Lake Street Fest:
