Best Music Festival

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

With absolutely no adjustments from last year, Country Fest, Rock Fest, and Country Jam placed just as they had in the 2011 poll. Attendees of Country Fest 2012 were probably charmed by the massive lineup of country all stars, including Keith Urban, Big & Rich, Brad Paisley, Sugarland, and Dierks Bentley. Rock Fest’s 2012 lineup were particularly punctuated by 1980s hair bands including Def Leppard, Poison, Sebastian Bach, Alice Cooper, while Country Jam featured Jason Aldean, Trace Adkins, Luke Bryan, LoCash Cowboys, and tons more. Getting bigger and more ambitious every year, Chippewa Valley concertgoers brace in anticipation for what the 2013 season will bring. – Tyler Griggs
