Trystar Events

In the summer of 2020, Trystar moved to a 120,000 square foot factory in Faribault, Minn., which houses manufacturing for our commercial, industrial and portable power operations. It is located at 15765 Acorn Trail, Faribault, MN  55021.


For four days in July, Trystar portable power products and cable helped to bring power to the inaugural 3M Open on the PGA Tour. With over 6.5 miles of cable running from generators, everything from cash registers to the Friday night concert lights powered up for 3M Open’s first year success.

On average, 32 million people attend music festivals in the United States each year. Over 600 are scheduled for 2019. And not one of them is possible without portable power. Many of these performances consist of light and sound shows that can run into the thousands, if not millions, of dollars to produce. And if the portable power products on the grounds fail, promoters only hear the sound of money going down the drain. That’s why many of the largest shows depend on Trystar products to keep the power on and the crowds rocking.


The festivities surrounding Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis included 10 days of events, dozens of live music performances, and entertainment experiences of all shapes and sizes. With 2-degree temperatures and more news media than anyone could count, pulling it all off also took miles of electrical cable, hundreds of stringer boxes, dozens of electrical panels and more. One manufacturer – right here in Minnesota – helps make it all happen: Trystar.


At the Soleheim Cup the LPGA’s best from America faces Europe in team competition. Rotating annually between European and American sites, the event visits Des Moines, Iowa for this prestigious event in August of 2017. Trystar has been asked to provide reliable temporary power for hospitality tents, concessions and media.


One of America’s largest music festivals, Bonnaroo, creates some of the most demanding environments for temporary power. In a matter of days, we helped transform a 100-acre farm to accommodate 65,000 fans. When equipment failure is not an option – customers count on Trystar.


Coachella in California and Bonnaroo in Tennessee are now two of the country’s largest and most prestigious outdoor music festivals, attracting hundreds of thousands fans and hundreds of bands — ranging from U2 to The Red Hot Chili Peppers — on multiple stages, along with massive food and beverage services, and acres of on-site camping and lodging for the attendees.

Trystar is proud to be trusted with the temporary power equipment at events where there can’t be any interruption in power. Although not the largest, these events are just a sample of the hundreds of music festivals and concerts that depend on Trystar’s equipment and expertise.


The PGA once again called on Trystar to provide power for a major tournament: The Zurich Open of New Orleans. Trystar equipment provided critical temporary power for hospitality tents, the press center and concessions.


Trystar equipment was once again chosen to provide power for the stage and microphones at the 2017 Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. With an audience of millions, the producers of this important event and television’s biggest stars depended on Trystar’s products to deliver.


The New Orleans Jazz Fest is one of America’s largest musical festivals with dozens of stages, as well as an event where Louisiana’s famous cuisine shares the spotlight. Once again, Trystar equipment was chosen to make sure the show went on.
