Tickets go on sale Friday, March 21 at 11 a.m.

The Beach Boys have sold over 100 million records worldwide and have received more than 33 RIAA Platinum and Gold record awards. The Rock And Roll Hall of Famers where also honored at the 2001 Grammy Awards with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Since lead-singer man Mike Love penned the lyrics to The Beach Boys’ first hit, “Surfin’” (1961), dozens of the bands chart toppers have become eternal anthems of American youth: “Surfin’ USA,” “Surfer Girl,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “I Get Around,” “California Girls,” “Good Vibrations,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” and “Kokomo.”
 
SATURDAY, JUNE 21 | THE FRAY
$35 general admission lawn, $35 general admission benches, and $55 reserved seating
Tickets go on sale Friday, March 28 at 11 a.m.

The Denver-based quartet rose to international success with its 2005 debut, How to Save a Life, featuring singles “Over My Head (Cable Car),” “Look After You,” and the title track, “How to Save a Life,” which is certified triple platinum by the RIAA. The Fray's use of the piano as the lead instrument in its music has led critics to compare the band with English piano-driven groups like Coldplay and Keane. However, the band lists its influences as The Wallflowers, Counting Crows, Better Than Ezra and U2.

FRIDAY, JUNE 27 | TRAMPLED BY TURTLES and DOOMTREE
$25 general admission lawn & benches, $31.50 reserved seating
Tickets go on sale Friday, April 4 at 11 a.m.

Within the contained music scene of Duluth, the Trampled By Turtles members did their own time in punk and rock bands, brandishing their electricity proudly before switching to acoustic instruments. While the guys never set out to be a “bluegrass” band, Trampled by Turtles employs many of the same traditional techniques of the genre, but the differences in influences, attitude and attack create TBT’s signature sound.
 
SUNDAY, JULY 6 | BONNIE RAITT and SPIDER JOHN KOERNER
$39.50 general admission lawn, $49.50 general admission benches, and $85 reserved seating
Tickets go on sale Friday, April 11 at 11 a.m.

Bonnie Raitt is a 10-time Grammy-award-winning singer, songwriter and guitarist whose unique style blends blues, R&B, rock, and pop. After 20 years as a cult favorite, she broke through to the top in the early 90s with her Grammy-award-winning albums, 'Nick of Time' and 'Luck of the Draw,' which featured hits such as, "Something To Talk About" and "I Can't Make You Love Me."
