EN VOGUE (Headliner) - Legendary! It’s a status very few groups ever attain. But for 30 years and counting, En Vogue has achieved this pinnacle on nothing but pure talent. And they are not letting up now. Still riding high off the global release of 2018’s Electric Café, En Vogue is literally soaring as Terry Ellis, Cindy Herron-Braggs and Rhona Bennett take the group to even greater heights. Recognized as one of the top 5 highest selling American female music groups in history, En Vogue has sold over 20 million albums to date. Their effortless transition into the digital age, complemented by their effortless chic, has garnered the group over 30 million streams and 26 million-plus YouTube views on their Top 6 hit singles alone; smashes such as "Hold On," "Free Your Mind," "Never Gonna Get It," "Giving Him Something He Can Feel," "Don’t Let Go," and "Whatta Man" (feat. Salt N Pepa).
FénixDion (Opener) - Minnesota-based duo creating music inspired by the generations before, an artistic vision which pulls from the roots of what has created our vision of American Music, culture, and beliefs without the inhibiting mindset of genre in an effort to break through our other inhibiting mindsets of race, class, sexuality, and gender in our divided country.
