On June 8 through 11, Paisley Park’s annual Celebration will return for a star-studded event slated to feature an exclusive presentation of unreleased music from the famous Prince Vault and special appearances by and conversations with Grammy-winning artist Chaka Khan, Chuck D and Doug E. Fresh.
Additionally, performances will come from Minnesota gospel groups Sounds of Blackness and The Steeles, R&B star Stokley of Mint Condition, artist, DJ, and producer D-Nice, and DJ Rashida, members of Prince’s band NPG, Prince backup singer and solo artist Shelby J, Minneapolis youth choir Known MPLS, and a showcase of emerging artists.
During the multi-day gathering at the late artist’s world-class recording studio, museum, and concert venue in Chanhassen, Minn., fans will also receive exclusive access to the “Purple Rain” singer’s vault of unreleased recordings and performances.
Celebration 2023 will also include a celebrity panel discussion pertaining to Prince’s life and career—looking at his relationship with hip-hop, the significance of the number “7” in his work, and the passionate voices and “fams” who are preserving Prince’s legacy.
Tickets for the coming together in June are on sale now and can be purchased here.
