'Celebration 2023' set to bring in Prince fans from around the world

Special guests include Chaka Khan, Chuck D and Doug E. Fresh.

CHANHASSEN, Minn. — It's the purple-powered pilgrimage Prince fans have been waiting for.

"Celebration 2023" – June 8-11 at Paisley Park – is set to be a celebration of the larger-than-life music icon.

"It's going to be a big four-day party where we have guests coming from all over the world to come to celebrate Prince," said Makayla Elder, Museum Collections Manager at Paisley Park. "It's going to highlight various panels as well as concerts and special footage that guests have never seen before of Prince." 

Among the guests set to perform are Stokley and Sounds of Blackness. The weekend will also bring special appearances by DJ D-Nice, Doug E. Fresh, Chuck D and Chaka Khan.

Paisley Park Security Manager Patrick Adams says fans can expect to hear all of Prince's hits they know and love. But the dearly beloved gathered in Chanhassen will also get a taste of something new.

"There's going to be a listening session where there's going to be music that nobody has heard before. So that's going to be super exciting," Adams said. "So they're going to leave with that experience to say, 'I've heard some Prince music that nobody else has heard.'"

A special weekend for the legion of loyal fans who have kept Prince's legacy going strong. 

"Their support has been so amazing," Adams said. "We've got people coming from all over the world. And it happens every day. So just being able to be a part of that and seeing that is tremendous. I've never seen anything like it before."
