Indeed Brewing Company Announces 2024 Whirlygig Music Lineup

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, April 2024: Indeed Brewing Company is excited to announce the music lineup for Whirlygig, a music, beer, and art festival on May 17-19, 2024. The weekend-long event takes place in conjunction with Art-A-Whirl, an annual artist studio tour throughout Northeast Minneapolis.

“It’s always an exciting time to be looking ahead to Whirlygig. Despite being an insane amount of work for our entire team, it’s one of the coolest things we do each year. In my opinion, Whirlygig has become one of the coolest events that happens in Minneapolis every year. This year will be no different. We’re lucky to have the larger Art-a-Whirl encompassing our party, and we’re always looking to add and build on that energy,” says Ryan Bandy, Chief Business Officer, Indeed Brewing Company.

“Eli Awada helped with booking the music this year, and we were lucky to work with him; he’ll be a name y’all hear a lot about in the music scene for a long time. Look at this damn lineup! I can say with certainty that every single band is worth seeing. I wouldn’t blame anyone that hung out at the stage for the whole weekend,” says Bandy.

“You’ll see the wide world of Minneapolis music, bouncing between guitar-driven rock and roll to hip hop; from physical performance to performances by a congresswoman. From badass women born in the 21st century to Cornbread Harris who is nearly a centenarian (97 years old!). Kevin Washington is a local legend who plays with some of the best players in the city while Carnage creates one of the best individual performances I’ve ever seen. We’re lucky to be able to highlight these artists. Whirlygig 2024 will be epic.”

In addition to a weekend full of music, there will be L.S.D (the beer!), Brightside Sea Salt & Lemon Lager, Flavorwave IPA and lots more beer among a selection of great food. Chuck U will be live painting, Legacy Glassworks and Flavor World will be returning this year, and Emma from Cool Trash will be joining the party.

“We’ve got a really fun collaboration release happening this year with Marijuana Deathsquads, who have consistently pushed the boundaries of art and we’re stoked to be doing some weird stuff with them,” says Bandy. “I can’t say too much about it yet, but it’ll be a fun one. And, like all Deathsquad sets, it’ll be a sight to see.”

Entry to this event is free and open to all ages (must be 21+ to drink beer and THC beverages). Whirlygig will go on rain or shine. The event is cash only, both inside and outside, with ATMs on-site.

Whirlygig coincides with Art-a-Whirl presented by NEMAA, the largest open studio tour in the country. There will be artwork from nearly 1,000 artists in every medium at more than 60 locations, including the Solar Arts Building.
