Rock the Garden 2016's Best Dressed


Festival goers at Rock the Garden 2016

Irv Briscoe

The Walker Art Center and 89.3 the Current’s Rock the Garden kicked off summer in the Twin Cities in style on Saturday afternoon with a full day of live music. This year's festival took place at a temporary new venue, Boom Island Park, as the Walker's Sculpture Garden undergoes construction—leading many attendees to dub it "Rock the Island." Live acts included festival favorite the Flaming Lips, on-the-verge underground hip hop act Chance the Rapper, singer-songwriter M. Ward, folk act Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, up-and-coming punk band Plague Vendor, and local darlings Poliça, Hippo Campus, and GRRRL PRTY (in what would be their last-ever show).

Here's a smattering of the stylish looks seen at this year's festival:
