Trampled by Turtles, Houndmouth, and Baharat at Bayfront Festival Park

The North was a proud sponsor of the annual Trampled by Turtles show at Bayfront Festival Park on July 6, 2024, presented by First Avenue and Rose. There was a chance of rain in the forecast, but after a brief afternoon sprinkle (followed by a rainbow over Lake Superior), it turned out to be a beautiful night for the sold-out show. Fans were lined up in anticipation of the gates opening at 4:30, and there was already a sizeable crowd when local band Baharat, winners of the 2024 Palomino Grant, took the stage. They were followed by Houndmouth, who had the audience singing along to their best-known song, "Sedona." Trampled by Turtles opened their set with "Duluth," and played favorites from throughout their career, including "Winners," with Duluth-centric lines like "Pretty little city built on a hillside / Music in the bars and fire in the sky," which, as always, drew massive cheers from the crowd. They welcomed Alan Sparhawk of Low to the stage to perform his song "Heaven" before a choir of more Duluth musicians including Sara Krueger and Teague Alexy joined in on "Wild Animals." They closed with "Midnight on the Interstate" before returning for a three-song encore, bringing Sparhawk back up for a jammy cover of Gordon Lightfoot's "Sundown," followed by "Whiskey" and "Wait So Long" to end the night.
