The early part of Spring Fest is a free, all-local showcase that runs from 11:30 a.m.-4 p.m., featuring performances by Caroline Smith & the Goodnight Sleeps, Chastity Brown, Zoo Animal, Dustin Thomas, Portage, and the Further Adjustments.
Following those performances, MN Activist has arranged a sure to be enlightening panel discussion lead by local MC/spoken word artist Guante, that will focus on where social and political change originates, and how we can be more socially/politically active on both a personal level and as a community. This event is also free and open to the public, and will take place from 5-6 p.m. in Sateren Auditorium (adjacent to Murphy Square).
And the festive, music-filled day does not stop there, as Murs is set to headline Spring Fest's hip-hop showcase which begins at 8 p.m. in Augsburg's Murphy Square. The innovative, California-based MC will be making his first local appearance since putting on yet another triumphant Paid Dues Festival, a wildly successful annual gathering of hip-hop heavyweights which he helped create.
In addition to Murs, M.anifest, Audio Perm, and Yakub will also be performing at the hip-hop showcase, which will run from 8-11:30 p.m., and will surely bring Spring Fest to a rousing close. The hip-hop showcase is a ticketed event, and a limited number of $10 tickets are available only at Studiiyo23.
