The Radio Waves Music Festival is a favorite for visitors, area residents and performing musicians. It’s held rain or shine - with two stages housed under a large tent - and includes on-site food, children’s activities and on-site camping. Admission – available at the gate - is $10 per day or $20 for the weekend, and free to children 12 and under.
 
Radio Waves is made possible in part with funding from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, and is supported by a grant from the Grand Marais Area Tourism Association and Visit Cook County. Proceeds from the event will help support WTIP’s equipment replacement project.
