It'll show tributes made in the two years since his death.

When Prince died in April 2016, fans from around the world flocked to Chanhassen and left tributes on the fence outside his Paisley Park studios.

Now, as part of Celebration 2018 – the second annual tribute festival to the Purple One – a special "Prince4Ever tribute fence" will be erected on the grounds of Paisley Park.

It did this last year, allowing people to make tributes for a week at the start of April, but this time around the fence will be up for the month.

It will display many of the memorial messages and "artifacts" left at the studios in the two years since his death.

Meanwhile, those looking to leave new messages will be able to do so on another fence that will be placed inside of Target Center, where Celebration 2018 will be hosting Prince: Live On The Big Screen on Apr. 21.

These new messages will also be collected and archived by Paisley Park.

This year's celebration will run from Apr. 19-22, with organizers saying tickets for it are almost sold out.

Musical acts confirmed include Prince collaborated Sheila E., while The Revolution members Bobby Z, Dez Dickerson and Matt Fink have been confirmed as speakers.
