About the 8th Annual Radio Waves Music Festival: 
September 11 to 13, 2015 

The eighth annual Radio Waves Music Festival was September 11 to 13, 2015 at Sweetheart’s Bluff in the Grand Marais campground and featured over 30 local and regional acts (see the listing of musicians below).  Once again, it was a wonderful event.  Here's our official "thank you" to the community for making it happen!

The Radio Waves Music Festival is sponsored by WTIP North Shore Community Radio, an independent, local radio station broadcasting from the north shore of Lake Superior.  It is held annually, the weekend after Labor Day.

The 2015 Radio Waves Music Festival was made possible in part by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, and supported by funds from the Grand Marais Area Tourism Association and Visit Cook County.
