MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota – Indeed Brewing Company is excited to announce the entertainment lineup for Whirlygig, a music, beer, and art festival on May 19-21. The weekend-long event takes place in conjunction with Art-A-Whirl, an annual artist studio tour throughout Northeast Minneapolis. The first Whirlygig was held 10 years ago in 2013.
“Being able to put together and launch Whirlygig this time of year is always a blessing. Dog days of winter and buckets of snow always makes it hard to envision spring ever getting here, but Whirlygig helps bring it into reach,” says Ryan Bandy, Director of Experience. “We have such a badass lineup this year, there’s really something cool about every band playing. Nur-D is bringing their full band, and we couldn’t be more excited about that. Saturday’s lineup is a beast, literally from the first band. We’re incredibly excited to highlight the mesmerizing drummer, modern band leader, incredibly kind, and total badass, LA Buckner and his band Big Homie. You’ll definitely be smiling.”
