If you miss Bonnaroo in June--or even if you do make it to the Roo--there will be a chance for more music later in the month. A new music festival in St. Paul, Minnesota is being planned at Harriet Island. Live Nation is coordinating the large-scale music festival, which is predicted to take place annually for five years. (But who's to say it won't become a longer term lifestyle staple like Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits?) Crowds will be big, about half a Roo, at 50,000. More about the Harriet Island music festival plans should be announced in early 2012.

Minnesota is soaking in the tunes! This music fest news comes on the heels of Minneapolis' new First Avenue Summer Music Fest.
