For over a quarter of a century, fans of country music have routinely traveled to the country’s Midwest to take part in one of the genres longest running celebrations of its traditions.
Approaching its 28th consecutive year in Cadott, WI, Country Fest will happen for four days during June 26-29 and will continue to provide a more intimate and personal experience because it has perfected the balance between booking the top acts and allowing fans to enjoy every single performance without the worry of choosing between bands and stages.
With just one main stage and a new performer starting every two hours, festival attendees at Country Fest know the exact daily lineup and will not have to stress about being overwhelmed or missing out on their preferred superstar.
Having begun in 1987, the talent list has included Ronnie Milsap, Tracy Byrd, Toby Keith, Joe Diffee, and Tim McGraw and has averaged a total of 25 acts per festival. This year’s big names will be Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, and Florida Georgia Line while additional artists of Rodney Atkins, Eli Young Band, Charlie Daniels Band and more than a dozen others will take the stage leading up to those headliners. Together with today’s top talent, the four main beer tents will host ambitious new country bands that promise to keep the atmosphere alive for those satisfying their dining and refreshment needs.
