"We are definitely looking forward to the whole thing; we have a lot of acts planned with a national, international, regional, and local mix," said Andre Perry, the Englert's executive director as well as the individual who oversees most of the programming committees for Mission Creek. "We have been trying to get these acts for a while and now finally have some great talent in the lineup such as the Divine Fits supergroup as well as Grizzly Bear."

Performances will take place at venues such as the Englert, the Mill, Blue Moose, Public Space One, Gabe's, Yacht Club, and Prairie Lights.
