The 4th Annual 10,000 Lakes Festival (10KLF
) will open its gates July 19-22, 2006 at the scenic Soo Pass Ranch in Detroit Lakes, MN for four special days of live musical performances and campout experiences in the Minnesota North Woods.
The 10,000 Lakes Festival community comes together once a year to celebrate great music in an enchanting natural setting within a participatory, dynamic festival environment. In 2005, the Minneapolis Star Tribune admired that the 10,000 Lakes Festival was "filled with thousands of good vibes." Jambase.com calls 10KLF "gold from the North Country." The Star Tribune continues "Even the musicians are impressed by the fest site." Jon Bell, singer/guitarist with Widespread Panic
told the Star Tribune backstage at 10KLF in 2005, "There's room to move and lots of friendliness and not too crazy. It's a very open vibe. You can't create that."
Dotting the spacious festival and campgrounds are 4 stages showcasing the 40+ bands performing on the Barn Stage
, a shady hill overlooking the concert bowl, the open air Field Stage
, the Saloon Stage
for intimate concerts and late night jams, and the Main Stage
where everyone gathers in the evening for the headliners' concerts featuring Trey Anastasio
, The String Cheese Incident
Additionally, independent and unsigned bands will have the opportunity to perform at the festival through the 'Cosmic Break' competition. Please visit the festival website after March 1 for information on how a band may submit materials for consideration to perform the 10,000 Lakes Festival.
