Radio Waves Music Festival starts today with Community Band at 4 p.m.

The 6th Annual Radio Waves Music Festival starts today! It features a diverse line-up of North Shore musicians playing back to back over three days at Sweetheart’s Bluff in the Grand Marais Recreation Area, from Friday - Sunday, Sept. 6 - 8. It’s the perfect setting for sharing the weekend with friends and family, while enjoying a wide variety of music. There will be a dance floor, free children’s activities from noon - 4:00 p.m. both days, and on-site food vendors providing snacks, meals, kid-friendly options, and a special Sunday morning breakfast. Don't worry about the weather, there's a big tent to protect the musicians and audience!

This year’s line-up reflects the incredible talent and diversity of North Shore musicians.  “It was really important to us to be inclusive and to build a line-up that explores the talent of the area,” says WTIP’s Music Director Cathy Quinn.  The line-up offers a variety of genres, from rock to folk, jazz, swing, and country. See the complete line-up below.

This year, the Radio Waves Music Festival is celebrating its sixth year. It takes place annually the weekend after Labor Day under a big tent in an outdoor venue, with on-site food, children’s activities, and on-site camping. Admission is only $5 per day or $10 for the weekend. For more information, check out WTIP’s website: www.wtip.org or call (218) 387-1070.
