Summer is in full swing; the time for summer concerts and festivals is here. The Midwest has always been a good stop for bands and musicians to come together and jam out for summer. Never again will you experience #FOMO while looking at your friend’s Instagram posts from a concert.
Attention all rock stars; Rock USA 2015 promises a lineup that will not disappoint. Oshkosh, Wisconsin will host many mega bands, including Avenged Sevenfold, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Judas Priest for four days from July 15-18. Bring your tent and grab some friends for a legendary experience.
Moving into Alternative Rock, our own local station, CD 102.5, is celebrating 25 years of independent radio broadcasting with their very own Summerfest. The three-day event from July 23-25 features Weezer, Cake, and many other popular bands. The station has dedicated the final day of the festival for up-and-coming and local talent for a day any music lover should not miss.
On the same weekend, Eau Claire, Wisconsin will host it’s Country Jam – one of the Midwest’s largest gatherings of country singers and fans. Stars like Lady Antebellum, Blake Shelton, and Eric Church headline the concert, with young artists like Sam Hunt and Hunter Hayes giving you even more reason to attend. Country concerts never seem to disappoint.
Lollapalooza’s reputation for good music and good times precedes itself. There are so many good artists on this lineup that I don’t even know who to highlight. This summertime music festival hosts artists from every genre, bringing a diverse and eclectic sound to Grant Park in Chicago. From July 31st to August 2nd, Lollapalooza is coming up, so start planning.
Although you already missed Summerfest in Milwaukee, the Chicago Blues Festival, and the Buckeye Country Superfest right here in Ohio Stadium, you have something to look forward to next year. Keep these on your radar for next summer so you’ll be on top of it when next spring rolls around.
As always, we didn’t cover every one of your favorite events, so feel free to let us know which festivals you’ve enjoyed this summer in the comments, on Twitter, or on Facebook.
