MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Tickets go on sale Saturday for the 17th annual Basilica Block Party in downtown Minneapolis.

This year’s block party will be held July 8-9 on the grounds of The Basilica of Saint Mary.

Artists include David Gray, the Jayhawks, and G. Love and Special Sauce on the first night. Ray LaMontagne, Amos Lee and the Drive-By Truckers are among acts scheduled the second night.

Single-night tickets are $40 and two-night passes are $70 through June 26. After June 26 and at the door, tickets are $45 for one night and $80 for two nights.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. at all Ticketmaster locations, online and by phone.

The block party began in 1995 as a fundraiser to pay for restoring The Basilica of Saint Mary.
