About Venue

The Varsity Theater is the crown jewel of the thriving Dinkytown, the neighborhood commercial district surrounding the University of Minnesota’s Minneapolis campus. It opened in 1915 as the University Theater. In 1939, it was remodeled in Art Moderne style and renamed the Varsity Theater when it reopened on April 21, 1939. Present Day, The Varsity Theater is now a special event and live performance venue again!

The Varsity has garnered an internationally-renown reputation for being one of the premiere music venues in the country; hosting such diverse and defining artists as Mumford and Sons, Feist, Brandi Carlile, Saul Williams, Phoenix, Janelle Monaé, Shellac, Jay Farrar and Ben Gibbard, Sia, Thurston Moore, Regina Spektor, The Hood Internet, Bob Mould, The Civil Wars, Ghostface Killah, Jamie Lidell, Low, Barenaked Ladies and the late Amy Winehouse to name just a few.

It is one of the most exciting performance and private venues in the Midwest. It’s FUNKY, ECLECTIC and FUN!
