A view of Radio Waves Music Festival 2013 from the Sweetheart's Bluff Sliding Hill (Carah Thomas)

Radio Waves Music Festival

Area residents and visitors of all ages came together for three days of music September 5-7 at Sweetheart’s Bluff in Grand Marais as part of the 7th Annual Radio Waves Music Festival, sponsored by WTIP North Shore Community Radio. 
 
“We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who came together to make the festival possible,” says Deb Benedict, WTIP’s executive director.  “To everyone who volunteered their time, to the restaurants and food vendors who set up to provide food  on-site, and to the amazing musicians who provided great entertainment – thank you!   All these efforts helped make the festival a huge success.” 
 
WTIP would also like to thank the Grand Marais Recreation Area and its crew, and the City of Grand Marais, who were strong supportive partners that offered up the perfect location for the festival.  “Mostly,” says Benedict, “we’d like to thank our fabulous community for their support.  It was wonderful to bring together over 1700 people to enjoy the extraordinary talent and diversity of the area.”
