It's quite easily the quickest way to get up to speed on Minnesota musicians of the future.

Never heard of ROCKChester before? According to Facebook, it's described as, " [...] a local music and arts festival showcasing the growing music and art scene in southeast Minnesota. Curated by a team of young adults, the event focuses on the cultivation and participation of a community of young creators, musicians, and visual artists." However, it includes artists and musicians of any age. It's just a really cool local event.

They just announced their lineup for June, and we're in for a treat!

You can get tickets today! At $12 a ticket for adults and $7 for students, it's totally affordable. $47 gets you more.

I'm so thrilled to see that this festival is still rockin'! Pure Rock Studios is quickly becoming a hotspot in Rochester, and a solid venue for bands in a city that desperately needs more. They really live by their "new level of music" motto, promoting local music first.

See you at the show!
