Minnesota Zoo Announces 2017 Music in the Zoo Line-Up

 

You know summer is on the way as soon as the Minnesota Zoo announces the line-up for their beloved outdoor, Music in the Zoo, concert series and that time of year has come and it’s come big! This year marks the 25th anniversary of the series which takes place inside the zoo at the Weesner Family Amphitheater between the months of June and August.

According to the Zoo’s website, “Celebrate 25 years of music under the stars at the best outdoor music venue in the Twin Cities – the Weesner Family Amphitheater at the Minnesota Zoo! The incredible and eclectic lineup of high-profile headliners, iconic musical luminaries, and up-and-coming buzz bands has something for every music lover.”

For the record, ticket holders also get free admittance to the Zoo starting at 4:00 pm on the day of the show, which allows for some quality pre-concert animal viewing! The line-up this year features close to 30 different acts including Pat Benetar, the B52’s, and Mason Jennings. Other major headliners include Ziggy Marley, Johnny Lang, Buddy Guy, and Boz Scaggs.

Tickets go on sale to Zoo members on Wednesday, April 19th at 10:00 am and then to the general public on Saturday, April 22nd at 11:00 am.  Check out the full list of dates and artists below!
