Indie hip-hop collective Doomtree has recently announced the first-ever Doomtree Zoo, a special all-day event to take place on Oct. 3 at CHS Field in St. Paul, Minn.
Doomtree, well known for singles such as “Beastface” and “Final Boss,” will headline the event. The group features five rappers – P.O.S, Dessa, Cecil Otter, Sims, and Mike Mictlan – and two producers – Lazerbeak and Paper Tiger – and will be supported by seven other acts. The acts, featuring hip-hop performances from Aesop Rock and Shabazz Palaces, were chosen to reflect the personal tastes of Doomtree members.
The afternoon hours will feature kid-friendly activities, such as face painting and performances by In the Heart of the Beast Theatre puppeteers. Admission will be free for children 8-years-old and under.
Later in the evening will feature performances geared more towards adults, featuring rowdier, nosier sets, and visual design from Toss Film + Design.
The event will take place from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m., rain or shine, at the home of the St. Paul Saints – CHS Field in Lowerton, St. Paul.
Tickets go on sale to the public on Saturday, Aug. 1 at 11 a.m. CST. Tickets can be purchased online here or directly from Doomtree at the CHS Field box office between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m, $35 in advance or $45 at the door. VIP Baller Passes are also available for $100; only 300 will be sold.
