New York, NY – Motion City Soundtrack are excited to present the first ever Popsickle festival in their hometown of Minneapolis, MN on December 18th. Taking over Minneapolis’ famed First Avenue and spilling over into 7th Street Entry, the all ages festival will feature headliners Motion City Soundtrack along with Minus the Bear, Foxy Shazam, Gold Motel, A Great Big Pile of Leaves, Now Now Every Children, One for the Team, Gospel Gossip, Take Cover and The Chord and the Fawn with more to be announced.
We wanted to start a festival in the vein of what Lollapalooza was to me in the early ’90’s — a bunch of bands that most likely would never have toured together, but were all doing something interesting and unique in that particular point in time. Our version of that will be much smaller of course, but the idea is the same. We hope to make this an annual festival that takes place in Minnesota every winter and hopefully can continue to grow in both scope and girth. – Justin Pierre/MCS
