The West Bank Music Festival will return for a second installment this year, anchored around an outdoor stage and fanning out to all of the music venues that line Cedar Ave. in the West Bank neighborhood of Minneapolis. 

The festival will take place on the evening of Saturday, August 20, and organizer's have announced today that Dessa will once again headline the fest along with Retribution Gospel Choir, the Goondas, Gramma's Boyfriend, and dozens of to-be-announced acts.
