The largest three-day rock music and camping event in the U.S. has announced next summer's lineup. Rock Fest 2022 will feature headliners SHINEDOWN, DISTURBED and EVANESCENCE and will take place on July 14, July 15 and July 16 in Cadott, Wisconsin. MUDVAYNE, HALESTORM and LAMB OF GOD will also perform alongside more than 70 bands over the course of the event.
After industry-wide postponements and cancellations of live events in 2020, Rock Fest was the first rock festival in the nation to return last year. Under the watchful eye of other festivals, and hell-bent on reviving the family reunion attendees have looked forward to for nearly three decades, Rock Fest 2021 turned out to be a sell-out year.
Festival promoter Wade Asher said 2021 gave the team a reinvigorated understanding of the impact of live music.
"While planning for this year's festival, we stumbled on a new study that said when we watch a concert together, our hearts beat in sync," Asher said. "We felt that. 2021 reminded us that live music is alive and thriving. We saw so many hugs. Total strangers met and left as family. This festival is so much more than music; it's a catalyst for healing. Let's feel it again."
