Rock the Garden 2015

June 20, 2015 - June 21, 2015


Saturday, June 20 2 p.m. – 10 p.m.

Sunday, June 21 2 p.m. – 10 p.m.

The two best days of summer are back! The most picturesque festival in the Twin Cities, Rock the Garden returns for two days of great music in the heart of the city. The 2015 lineup features 10 bands ranging from Minnesota punk legends and stars of Afrobeat to scions of rock-and-roll history.

The weekend kicks off on June 20 with buzz-worthy local rap and R&B group thestand4rd, Lucius’ luscious pop harmonies, Aussie Courtney Barnett’s jangly rock-pop, and folk stalwart Conor Oberst. Wistful Glasgow-based Belle & Sebastian will headline night one.

Day two, June 21, brings Sean Lennon leading the Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger’s psych sound, JD McPherson’s raucous retro-rockabilly, joyful Afrobeat grooves of Seun Kuti & Egypt 80, and epic return of punk pioneers Babes in Toyland. Headliner indie icons Modest Mouse will cap off the weekend.
