The Great Northern believes in being out in it. The cold. The ice. The snow. The flurries and drifts and whiteouts and whatnot – all of it. They believe in layering up. Bundling up. Wearing big coats, big boots and even bigger hats.

Nicollet Mall took center stage on Friday, February 1st as we hosted DJ Shannon Blowtorch and national recording artists Matt and Kim, the duo known for infectious, beat-driven anthems and explosive live shows for a free concert. Festivities kicked off with a little taste of summer in the winter. Partnering restaurants opened their patios for the evening and Nicollet had additional activities.

This event was free and open to the public. Music on the Mall is made possible thanks to the generous sponsorship support of The Minneapolis Foundation and Red Bull.
