Minneapolis will get a new amphitheater within city limits, according to multiple reports.
A new 6,000 seat amphitheater (which can hold up to 10,000 occupants total) is set to begin construction sometime in 2021, according to City Pages. The proposed venue, converted from a former barge shipping terminal and aptly named the Upper Harbor Terminal Community Performing Arts Center, is backed by First Avenue and will serve North Minneapolis nonprofits.
The venue will have multiple functions - not only will it be a concert venue, but also an open park for public use when it's not running one of its 50 ticketed events. During cold weather, the space can be converted into a smaller, enclosed space, reports Pollstar.
