Twin Cities Sounds

All-ages events and music in the Twin Cities and metro area

Maggie McBrady and Lizzie Tullis

Last Friday the Walker Arts Center hosted an event directed towards high school age students called Teen Takeover. This bi-annual event is planned and put on by a council of teen members. There were DJs and dancing, karaoke, photo ops, and the art galleries were open for viewing. This was one of the many all-ages events available for students in the Twin Cities and metro area. 

Teen Takeover at the Walker Art Center

Events like Teen Takeover or all-ages concerts are usually free of cost or generally affordable, with entrance fees of $5-$25, or with free admission with suggested donations, making them all fairly accessible. All-ages art and music events are important because they allow young people to learn about the arts and connect with people who have similar interests. All-ages events help students connect with other youth outside of their schools in a safe space.
