Young in a Million to headline music fest

Young in a Million, a country pop group based out of Nashville, Tennessee, will perform on Sunday July 10, at the 2nd annual Uffda Fest in Roosevelt Park, Minot.

The event runs from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. and will also feature yard games, cotton candy and free food/cold brew coffee while supplies last. A $10 donation is suggested.

Young in a Million is scheduled to perform at the music fest at 7 p.m. at the Roosevelt Park band shell.

Young in a Million includes lead singer Kody Ternes, a Minot native, who moved to Nashville five years ago to pursue a career in music. Since being there he and Alex Christopher formed the Young in a Million group.

The band received national recognition last year when they opened for the bands Cold Play and Maroon 5 in Los Angeles. The band will be featured as an opener at the North Dakota State Fair Grandstand this year.

Besides Young in a Million, the Uffda Fest will feature Spoken, another Nashville-based band, and three hip hop artists from the Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, area.

Local artists will include Daniel Starks, who has entertained at Norsk Hostfest, Jared Schumaier and Jacob Rocky.

Event promoter Dan Hansen said the event was birthed a couple years ago out of the idea to bring people together and celebrate heritage, live music and just plain hanging out in person, something that has become a rare commodity after the pandemic isolated people.

All proceeds will benefit Greater Minot Youth Concert Association, a local no profit organization.
