The city of Duluth is hosting its annual Summer Stage Concert this weekend and the theme is something I can 100% get behind! Attendees will be getting a live mixtape. If you grew up in the mixtape era, then you know it was such a staple in music history – whether it was your boyfriend making you a mix of love songs that made him think of you, or your bestie adding all of the newest music you could party to. If you weren’t around during those days, just think of a Spotify playlist that took a little more work than hitting the “add to playlist” button. One of the best parts – the concert is free!
With the theme being “Evolution of Pop,” concertgoers will be getting a mix of some legendary music. You’ll be able to hear music from artists including Michael Jackson, The Beetles, James Brown, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Prince, Bruno Mars, Stevie Wonder, The Black Eyed Peas, Ed Sheeran, Usher, Maroon 5, Justin Timberlake, The Weekend, Justin Bieber, Chris Stapelton, Queen and so many more. Just look at that list! It sounds like a great time to me.
