The late-summer magnet for music fans that is the Minnesota State Fair Grandstand has just widened its offerings. New concerts packed into the late-summer blast of live, outdoor spirit have a distinctly nostalgic vibe with the additions of Train, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Smash Mouth, Sammy Hagar, and several others. Also, the local tradition of MN Music On-A-Stick just got a few more acts thrown into the fryer in the form of the Suburbs and P.O.S.
With Depeche Mode, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Tim McGraw on the Grandstand, as well as Sheila E. and plenty more on the free stages already announced, this thing is getting mighty busy. Check out the dates below.
