Radio Waves Music Festival
Sept. 6-8 in Grand Marais
WTIP Community Radio announces the lineup for the Radio Waves Music Festival, Friday, Sept. 6- Sunday, Sept. 8 at Sweetheart’s Bluff in the Grand Marais Recreation Area. This marks the 12th year of this family-friendly festival, which features a diverse mix of local and regional artists. The event features three days of live music under the big sky and big stars of the North Shore, just a stone’s throw from Lake Superior.
Twenty-five acts will take the stage at this year’s festival, six of which are new to the festival, including the Joshua J. Schmidt Band and acoustic-Ska duo Woodblind. The weekend will also feature performances by local, regional and national favorites, including: The Carpenter Ants from Charleston, West Virginia (gospel-soul), Pushing Chain (roots-Americana), Yellow Bellied Sapsuckers (hillbilly country), Cherry Dirt (Americana with a twist), Lake Effect (folk), and the students and teachers of the Grand Marais Music Collaborative (variety). The full music lineup is online at www.wtip.org – just look for “Radio Waves Music Festival” under the EVENTS drop-down menu. Festival hours are Friday, 4 to 10 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
A favorite of both visitors and area residents, as well as performing musicians, Radio Waves is held rain or shine - with two stages housed under a large tent - and includes on-site food as well as children’s activities for a portion of Saturday and Sunday. WTIP is offering online ticket sales, a new option for 2019. Admission, also available at the gate, is $10 per day or $20 for the weekend. Festival admission is free to children 12 and under. The Radio Waves Music Festival is made possible in part with funding from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, with additional support from Visit Cook County, the Gunflint Trail Association and the Grand Marais Area Tourism Association.
