So what’s the deal with Homegrown Music Festival ticket prices as it relates to Truman, you ask?
In past years, you haven’t needed a Homegrown wristband/ticket to see Truman. You will this year.
So here’s a quick ticket breakdown if you can’t remember from last year, if you have out-of-town guests who are wondering about tickets, etc.
Homegrown tickets, explained
(By the way — please feel free to share this post around — the ticket sitch is not well explained in the Homegrown Field Guide (see the pic?) — or on the website).
• Wristband pre-sales have ended — you can buy them at the door of the venues that charge.
• A $30 wristband gets you into everything all week long — all paid events Monday through Saturday including the main room shows at Clyde Iron Wednesday featuring Low as well as the Friday-Saturday, 20-venue, god-knows-how-many (maybe 80?) band blitzkrieg.
• Weekday-only (Monday-Thursday) wristbands are $10. This includes yours Truman. That’s for Monday-Thursday, EXCEPT for the Clyde Iron mainroom on Wednesday, where you need the $30 wristband. Because Low.
• Friday-only or Saturday-only wristbands are $20.
• Most of the non-bar venues — straight-up restaurants, art galleries, coffee joints, etc. are all ages and many of them are free (especially during the daytime).
The Duluth News Tribune’s arts reporter Christa Lawler also has a great Homegrown overview of other info you will find useful as you gird your loins for #HGMF16.
