Put out your stetsons and grab your sunscreen, Country Fest is back. The gates will open for three-day fest-goers on Wednesday, June 20, with a kickoff party. This year will include headliners Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, and Brantley Gilbert, and many other performers such as Lauren Alaina, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Patrick Murphy, the James Barker Band, and Kip Moore. But that’s just scratching the surface: A total of 42 different acts will grace the Country Fest stages over the course of the weekend. The campgrounds at the Chippewa Valley Festival Grounds will be open for festival camping. Make sure to sign up for campsites as soon as possible – they’re filling up fast! Prices vary depending on campsite. Country Fest will host an army of food trucks and beverage stands (the list of vendors will be available soon on the Country Fest website). The festival grounds are fully accessible, and accessibility tickets/passes are available for purchase online as well. There are loads of additional activities to enjoy between shows, including carefully placed beer carts, photo-ops, the Fest Olympics, giant games, Hammock Haven, helicopter rides, motocross, and Fest confessions. There’s never a boring moment at Country Fest. For more information, visit or call (800) 326-3378.
