On behalf of the Prior Lake Rotary Club, my Lakefront Music Fest tri-chairs Frank Boyles, Michelle Jirik and I want to thank the citizens of Prior Lake for helping to make Lakefront Music Fest 2021 our most successful festival to date. The combination of perfect weather and a strong line-up made for a great weekend of live music in front of sold-out crowds both nights.

Friday evening featured classic rock favorites Styx and Cheap Trick as co-headliners along with opening band 38 Special. Clearly our fans wanted to see all three bands and we apologize for the long lines getting into the park and getting beverage tickets. The adjustments that we made for Saturday night helped a lot but further improvements will be made next year to minimize the bottlenecks that occurred. We can and will do better!
