Miike Snow leads Go Fest '16 at First Avenue


Go 96.3 has announced the lineup for Go Fest '16, which will be held at First Avenue on the weekend of July 29-30. The Alternative Channel's night is led by Swedish alt-pop act Miike Snow.

Known for the pulsing hit "Animal," off their 2009 self-titled debut, the group will return to the Twin Cities for the first time in four years. The performance comes supporting the album "iii" (here it is on Spotify) which was released in March and includes the single "Genghis Khan."

Filling out the lineup is Colorado-based Robert DeLong, whose ambient pop single "Long Way Down" was the very first song played on Go 96.3 when it launched in January of 2015. Detroit synth-rockers JR JR (formerly Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.), who visited the Go Garage in 2015, ride the success of "Gone" into this gig.

Finally, DENNY represent the Twin Cities. Formerly known as Asker, the trio is led by vocalist Alex Rollins and expect to release their debut EP later this year. Learn more about them in Go 96.3's Barb Abney's Go Local Spotlight of the band.

Go Fest '16 will also feature a hip-hop lineup at First Avenue on Friday, July 29. That lineup will be announced soon.

Go Fest '16. $25 advance/doors, 18+, First Avenue, Saturday, July 30, 2016. Tickets.

Go 96.3 Presale runs Wednesday, May 4 at 10 a.m. until Friday, May 6, at 9:59 a.m. Password: GO
