RiverSong is Minnesota’s homegrown music festival on the music scene for a decade. It’s proudly one of Minnesota’s most affordable music festivals, where we work hard to offer value-priced tickets to make RiverSong affordable to everyone. Thanks to our sponsors, volunteers, and attendees, RiverSong continues to be a “must-attend” festival in the heart of summer.
So Karlie, you’ve attended RiverSong for many years and volunteered in a number of ways. Inquiring minds want to know:
What is your Minnesota tie?
I have lived in Minnesota pretty much my whole life and have lived in Hutchinson for 7.5 years. It’s fun to discover tons of Minnesota bands that I didn’t know existed through RiverSong.
What is your favorite thing about RiverSong?
I really like that it’s a great outdoor event right in town. I run into tons of people that I know, and it’s great to see them out enjoying the music and weather.
Share your top memory of RiverSong over the years.
Not sure that I can pick one- I’ve enjoyed every year that I’ve gone!
What are your top 5 favorite performers of all time?
I have enjoyed Little Hurricane, Michael Shynes, Lowland Lakers, Fabulous Armadillos, Caravan of Thieves. Every year there are several that I enjoy and continue to listen to. It’s hard to pick.
If you were to offer a tip to someone attending for the first time this year, what would it be?
Bring a comfy chair, lots of sunscreen, an empty water bottle to refill, and an appetite (there’s tons of good food!)
