Lakefront Music Fest Brings Suburbs to Main Stage

Lakefront music fest

What started as a local suburban event has turned into one of the largest outdoor music festivals in the Twin Cities. The Lakefront Music Fest is two full nights of music: one night devoted to country, the other to classic rock. It takes place this weekend, on Friday the 18th and Saturday the 19th.

Last year, when Bret Michaels and Montgomery Gentry took the stage, more than 20,000 people were in attendance.
