New features at Rock Fest

Cadott, WI (WEAU) -- It's finally time to rock, or at least for those with tickets on this first day of Rock Fest.

The faces of rock are everywhere as campers get ready to hear some of their favorite bands take the stage at Rock Fest in Cadott.

"This year the big buzz has been about Aerosmith, one of the biggest bands that we've ever had at Rock Fest, the response to the lineup has been overwhelming, people are so excited” says Director of Marketing and Sponsorship, Jill Brenner.

Brenner says this year is history in the making.

Brenner says, “Aerosmith and Live played together 20 years ago in Hollywood and this is the first time they've played together since then. So, it's a 20 year reunion for Aerosmith and Live. All of the bands know each other so well, so we're hearing a lot of buzz that they're excited to see on another out here.”

Brenner says while the music is a big part of why people come, she says it's also about people getting together with their rock family.

“It's very fun for us after the event to hear people talk about not only, “I heard my favorite band and I'll never forget”, but then they also talk about the friends and family that they've made. They really talk about Rock Fest like it's a big rock reunion. They see people once a year and it's out here at Rock Fest.

And fest goers like Tracy from Minnesota, couldn't agree more. She says, “We've had a lot of friends come out, she's my best friend and we met 18 years ago here.”

Brenner also says this is the first year the after parties, hosted in the Leinie's Lodge, will have national acts playing after the final show of the night.
Rock Fest continues until Sunday, so Brenner says there's still plenty of time to grab a ticket.
