Among four other headliners — the presence-driven catharsis of Cloud Cult, the all-out dance party of Later Babes, the heart-filled feminism of Caroline Smith, and the blood-vessel-breaking rock of The Kickback —  this year’s 605 Summer Classic has booked a newly installed, but equally beloved fifth featured act: beer.

Beer that makes South Dakotans proud. 605 Magazine’s annual two-day festival in downtown Sioux Falls at Cherapa Place will open Friday, June 19 with five of 10 diverse, precisely picked bands, and on Saturday, June 20 from 3 to 6 p.m., a group of nine statewide breweries will represent a golden and bubbly fifth headliner, preluding that evening’s final five musical acts.

We can say cheers to that. Now let’s meet the other four main acts.
