School of Rock, the leader in performance-based music education, brings a “festival within a festival” to Summerfest. This event showcases nearly 600 student performers in 82 bands from more than 40 School of Rock locations around the world.

With over 240 locations in 9 countries, School of Rock is fostering the next generation of musicians by putting students on stage in real rock venues, such as the "World's Largest Music Festival" - Summerfest!

They are ending their tour back here in the Twin Cities with a performance at Mortimers on July 1. 60-9pm. It's free, open to the public and all ages. Joining them will be School of Rock Winnipeg and School of Rock Kansas City.
