Melissa Etheridge, O.A.R., The Rembrandts, Gear Daddies and The Honeydogs Will Headline the Skyline Music Festival at Target Field.
It’s the return of the Skyline Music Festival on August 9 at Target Field.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday, June 11 at 10 a.m. on twinsbaseball.com. At this years festival the stage will be set up in foul territory near 3rd base with seating limited to seating sections along the 3rd base side of the ballpark. This will allow fans intimate views of the performances, as well as stunning views of the Minneapolis skyline.
Rock Singer/Songwriter Melissa Etheridge headlines the evening. Etheridge is known for her mixture of “confessional lyrics, pop-based folk-rock, and raspy, smoky vocals.” She has received fifteen Grammy Award nominations, winning two and an Academy Award.
Alternative Rock Band, O.A.R. is renowned for its intense, vibrant live show — including selling out Madison Square Garden twice —and the communal feeling it shares with its fans.
The Rembrandts gained popularity not only for their hit songs, but for their signature harmonies and catchy hooks that filled their albums from start to finish.
Gear Daddies, from Austin, Minnesota have been together for nearly 30 years and are one of the most resilient and influential Americana/Rock bands ever to come out of the Twin Cities.
The Honeydogs is another group to emerge from the ever-fertile Minneapolis music scene. The band debuted with a 1995 self-titled effort which introduced their twangy garage-pop sound.
Gates for the Skyline Music Festival on Saturday, Aug. 9 will open at 4 p.m. with music starting at 5 p.m.
