Paisley Park wants fans to be part of its month-long 'Prince4Ever' celebration

Anyone will be able to add messages or tributes to the Prince4Ever fence.

Paisley Park is planning a month of special projects and events to mark the one-year anniversary of Prince's death.

Organizers put out details Tuesday for the "Prince4Ever" tribute celebration, which will run in April. Here's a look at what it includes.

A tribute fence everyone can add to

Following Prince's death, thousands of fans placed signs, notes, flowers and other tokens of appreciation along the chain link fence outside Paisley Park. Some of those have been saved, and will be part of aPrince4Ever tribute fence.

The fence will be set up inside the property (in a grassy area along the north parking lot) and include the fan-donated artifacts and messages.

In addition, on two Mondays in April, Paisley Park will allow anybody to come on to the grounds free of charge to attach their own new tributes to the fence. That will be on Apr. 3 and Apr. 10, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

People who go on the Paisley Park tours can place messages as well.

The fence will be up throughout the month of April.

New video, photos and audio

Paisley Park says there will be an "enhanced" version of its tours for the month. The exhibition spaces will show "rarely seen video footage, audio clips and artifacts," to help "bring a heightened sense of presence to Prince."

They've actually been showcasing some rare footage in recent weeks at the Paisley Park After Dark sessions.

A few weeks ago it was footage from London, during one of Prince's 21 shows at O2 Arena in 2007. On Jan. 14 they showed Prince's Jan. 4, 1998, performance in Kansas City, as part of the Jam of the Year World Tour.

Be part of a photo project

Organizers are also putting together a big photo tribute project they're asking people to take part in.

Everyone who visits through the first weeks of April can get their photo taken in a "special candle-lit setting" at Paisley Park. Everyone who gets snapped will be put into a special video project that will be released online Apr. 21 – the anniversary of Prince's death.

Celebration 2017

All that is in addition to the big, four-day Celebration 2017 festival that was announced in November – performances, discussions and special tours that'll celebrate Prince.

Paisley Park said Tuesday the celebration will include musicians that worked with Prince throughout his career, bringing them all together for the first time. That includes members of The Time, The Revolution, New Power Generation and 3RDEYEGIRL

The VIP passes – which are more than $1,000 with fees – are completely sold out. But there are some general admission passes still available (at $499), which gives you up to five hours of programming each of the celebration's four days, plus access to exclusive concert events, panel discussions and guided tours.
