Minnesota Music Month 2024: Events, dates, and details

Minnesota Music Month 2024
Minnesota Music Month 2024MPR

The Current, Carbon Sound, and Radio Heartland are excited to present Minnesota Music Month this April. We’ll celebrate on air, online, and with four shows in St. Paul, all featuring local music performances to celebrate our thriving Minnesota music community.

In a 2019 proclamation, Gov. Walz named April as Minnesota Music Month. Minnesota Music Month recognizes the deep influence of its artists and their contributions to foster understanding of one another through music. The month is a chance to honor the creativity, energy, and rich history of Minnesota’s music scene.

The full schedule of The Current’s St. Paul events for Minnesota Music Month is below — plus a handful of great events around Minnesota featuring local musicians throughout April.

We have just revealed the results of the Minnesota Music Month Scouting Report right here.

Note: The only way to attend the events at Turf Club, UBS Forum at MPR, and Amsterdam Bar & Hall shows is to win tickets. Follow the links below to find out how to enter for your chance to win and learn more about each show. Members of The Current get an exclusive presale on Thursday, March 14, to see jeremy messersmith, MAKR AN ERIS, and KC Rae at the Fitzgerald Theater on April 25.
