After a year-long hiatus, the Pizza Luce Block Party is returning this year with a new location and a gigantic lineup. The free, outdoor festival got a bit too big for its britches in its old Uptown location, so they’re bringing the party downtown and taking over the block in front of the pizza chain’s flagship store in honor of their 20th anniversary.
This year’s block party is happening Saturday, August 10, at the corner of Second Avenue and Fourth Street in downtown Minneapolis. The event’s organizers just announced the full lineup today, with Motion City Soundtrack headlining and a great mix of other genres (from rap to country to hardcore and back again) thrown in. Here’s the rundown:
Cannons North (Pizza Lucé’s own)
Pennyroyal (Pizza Lucé’s own)
After the Burial
Motion City Soundtrack
The block party kicks off at noon and goes until 10 p.m., and is free and open to all ages.
