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.

As with last year, a wristband will be sold for the festival that covers admission into the main stage area outdoors as well as all of the participating West Bank clubs, which last year included venues like the Nomad, Acadia, Triple Rock, Red Sea, Whiskey Junction and Palmer's.

Here are the set times for the outdoor stage, which organizers are hoping to set up in the street this year pending approval from the city:

Surprise Guest is lined up. You'll just have to wait and see.

Having booked a ton of shows like this I can presume that "surprise guest" means "we're still trying to find someone for that slot."


I assume "surprise guest" refers to Ghostmouth...


Just so happen to be in town from Milwaukee that night! Such a great end to my trip! Can't wait.
