In just four short days, the #GoFam will be taking over Minneapolis’ West Bank neighborhood for an unforgettable night of outdoor music at GoFest ’18! This Friday, June 29th at Cabooze Outdoors, AWOLNation, The Neighbourhood, Lovelytheband, L.I.F.T. and Yam Haus will rock the stage, and we’ve got all the info that you need to know below!
Help! I still need to purchase tickets! How do I do that?
GoFest ’18 tickets are available via this ticket link!
Where is the Cabooze and where do I park?
The Cabooze is located at 917 Cedar Avenue South, just south of 94E and west of Downtown Minneapolis. Street parking around the venue will be extremely limited, and the nearest parking ramps are the Seven Corners Parking Ramp (1504 S Washington Ave) and the 19th Avenue Parking Ramp (300 S 19th Avenue). Fort this reason, we strongly recommend taking public transit to GoFest ’18, as The Cabooze is directly adjacent to the Hiawatha (Blue Line) Light Rail’s Franklin Avenue station, and is also accessible via bus. We also recommend using Uber or other ride-sharing apps for a guaranteed safe ride home!
What time does GoFest ’18 start?
Doors will open for GoFest at 4pm and music will start at 4:30pm with a set from our GoLocal Battle of the Bands winners Yam Haus.
What time do the bands play?
Set times will be announced later this week on GoRadioMN.com.
What happens if it’s really hot, or if it rains?
The event will be held outside rain or shine. Friday’s forecast is currently looking clear, but it will be hot. Make sure to follow Giselle’s sage advice and HYDRATE. For festival-friendly fits and fashion, check out Jordan’s guide to dressing right for GoFest ’18!

Is smoking allowed?
The Cabooze allows smoking, but please be mindful of those around you and please dispose of you butts safely.
Can I bring my pet?
GoFest ’18 is a hot asphalt event, and your pet could seriously hurt their paws, so we’re asking that you leave them at home. Registered service animals will be allowed at the discretion of The Cabooze.
Can I bring a lawn chair/camp chair?
The Cabooze prohibits lawn chairs and camp chairs, but blankets and towels are allowed.
What if I need first aid?
We really hope you won’t, but The Cabooze will provide a first aid station just outside of the festival’s main gates. But seriously, be safe and drink a lot of water y’all.
