Motion City Soundtrack will headline the first ever Popsickle Festival in their hometown of Minneapolis, MN on December 18th. The band is starting the festival in the vein of Lollapalooza and hope to continue it every winter. More information is available below.

As one of the few festivals taking place in the winter time, Popsickle will fill the void that is much needed during the desolate set of winter months. More than just a concert, Popsickle will provide fans a fervent day in December of music and friends and fun, that will keep them warm all winter long.
We wanted to start a festival in the vein of what Lollapalooza was to me in the early “˜90′s “” a bunch of bands that most likely would never have toured together, but were all doing something interesting and unique in that particular point in time. Our version of that will be much smaller of course, but the idea is the same. We hope to make this an annual festival that takes place in Minnesota every winter and hopefully can continue to grow in both scope and girth. ““ Justin Pierre/MCS
