“Bringing together musicians, creative personnel, special guests and friends who worked closest with Prince and knew him best, these four days will feature live music, panel discussions and presentations on Prince’s tremendous talent, influence and importance as a composer, musician, producer, live performer and filmmaker,” Celebration 2017 organizers wrote.

Four-day VIP and general admission passes are available online.

General admission tickets cost $499 and include up to five hours of event programming each day, including access to four concerts. VIP tickets cost $999 and include on-site parking, photo and autograph opportunities and a meal pass.

Paisley Park officially opened as a museum dedicated to Prince on Oct. 28, the same day the mayor of Chanhassen declared Paisley Park Day in the Minnesota city.

Prince died April 21 of an accidental overdose at Paisley Park, his home and recording complex in suburban Minneapolis.
