Best Music Festival

1st Place: Country Fest
2nd Place: Country Jam
3rd Place: Rock Fest


These three festivals are the clearest way some of the biggest names in music make their way to the Chippewa Valley. This year alone we saw Aerosmith, Rob Zombie, Cheap Trick, REO Speedwagon, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Florida Georgia Line, Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, and Luke Bryan swing through. First place is Country Fest, the massive June undertaking which saw huge headliners and is in the planning stages for an even bigger Fest in 2015. Then country music lovers flocked to Country Jam to see Luke Bryan (second place for Best Musical Performance in this year’s poll) and Jason Aldean. Country Jam already has Blake Shelton and Eric Church lined up for 2015, so it wouldn’t be out of the norm to see them appear in this category next year. Rock Fest took the third-place spot with a dynamite Aerosmith show and huge supporting acts from classics to modern rock. Get your camping gear ready for next year! –Eric Christenson
