The sold out, four-day event is dubbed Celebration 2017. Prince fans paid up to $1,000 for a VIP exclusive ticket. 

The event will include up to five hours of live music each day, panel discussions and presentations about the superstar's musical success. Prince was a composer, producer, live performer and filmmaker. 

The celebration will continue throughout the Twin Cities this weekend, including several dance parties at First Avenue in downtown Minneapolis.
