    Default Rivers Edge - A New Minnesota Festival

    California-based concert promoter Live Nation announced an agreement with the city of St. Paul on Thursday that calls for the company to produce a multi-day festival on Harriet Island each summer for the next five years.

    The idea is to create a destination event similar to Lollapalooza, which has taken place each summer since 2005 in Chicago's Grant Park, or Tennessee's Bonnaroo Music Festival, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in June.

    This is huge for the city of St. Paul, which in the past has often played second fiddle to Minneapolis. Harriet Island is not technically an island but is a city park immediately across the river from DT St. Paul and is a beautiful location. There is an actual island (Navy Island) included in the park, which will be a great spot for a separate stage.
