Mid West Music Fest is proud to announce that Minneapolis-based alternative hip-hop act Astronautalis will be headlining MWMF’s Vega Productions stage this year at Jefferson’s Event Center on Thursday, April 18th. This (and all) shows during the fest are included the 3-day wristband (on sale now HERE). $20 Friday-only day passes will also go on sale soon. Admission for this show only will be $15 at the door.
AllMusic.com has described Astronautalis as “if Beck were a decade or so younger and had grown up more heavily immersed in hip-hop,” with his rapping style noted for “blending styles of indie rock, electro, and talkin’ blues” with hip-hop. He has described himself as “historical fiction hip-hop.”
