In a nutshell
Minnewiki is an online reference about music-related artists, groups, and venues with a Minnesota connection. These pages are meant to communicate real information – not opinion or promotional items.
Minnewiki is created through collaborative effort -- when you register you become an author and editor of Minnewiki content. The depth and quality of Minnewiki is the result of many people's efforts.
You can create a new entry for a favorite band or artist and include their roster, their discography, and their background. (Learn more about creating a new page.)
If you’re reading a page and note something is out of date or incorrect, you can update it or change it. (Learn more about editing pages.)
Jump in and search for your favorite performers and venues. If you don’t see them, you can add them! To watch Minnewiki grow and change, check out recent changes for updates or take a look at the new articles. You can also request articles if you’re not ready to participate. If you like surprises, ask for a random article.
