Headliner Brother Ali is a pillar of Minnesota hip-hop. He's won legions of fans from around the world for his smart, agile rhymes set to killer beats. Next month, Ali sets out on nationwide Home Away From Home tour through November.

Doomtree might just be the highest-energy crew in hip-hop, and they have stayed strong as a collective even while their respective solo careers have taken off. The Grandstand stage will never be the same after it's simultaneously stormed by Dessa, Mike Mictlan, Lazerbeak, P.O.S., Cecil Otter, Paper Tiger, and Sims.

Brother Ali and Doomtree share the stage with Husker Du frontman Bob Mould, Duluth indie rockers Cloud Cult, crooner Har Mar Superstar, and The Cactus Blossoms.

Tickets are available for $30 to the general public or $25 for MPR members.
