Rock the Garden 2014

Copresented by the Walker Art Center and 89.3 The Current

Why Rock the Garden for one day when you can rock it for two? The Twin Cities’ favorite summer concert returns with the first two-day format in the annual event’s history. The weekend festival blowout reflects the hallmark eclecticism of the Walker Art Center and 89.3 The Current. From indie blues to surf rock, frenetic pop to post-punk, hard-charging rock to hip-hop, each day’s lineup offers “anything can happen” moments that you’ll be talking about for years to come!
