The Live Nation-sponsored River's Edge Festival at Harriet Island has finally unveiled its lineup. As expected, Tool and Dave Matthews Band will headline the offerings held on Saturday, June 23, and Sunday, June 24.

The event is intended to rejuvenate the St. Paul park destination on the Mississippi River, and attract about 40,000 locals. Harriet Island had dormant summers for the first time in decades when Taste of Minnesota was halted in 2010 following years of financial struggles. True to St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman's predictions, the event will host a couple of stages, and some local acts will be involved. The full lineup is below.
