Cadott, Wisconsin’s RockFest has announced its lineup for summer 2019. The festival will be running from Wednesday, July 17 until Saturday, July 20. RockFest will feature headliners such as Five Finger Death Punch, Marolyn Manson, and Evanescence. The festival has been held annually since 1994 and will be celebrating its 26th anniversary this year. RockFest boasts 7,000 campsites at the venue and an average of 30,000 visitors daily, though it has been known to double that number, such as when Iron Maiden hit the main stage in 2012. Not only is RockFest a major hub for rock fans, but it is also a major philanthropist. Each year, RockFest, combined with other festivals held in Chippewa Valley, has contributed more than $400,000 to over 150 charities.
This summer, RockFest will include major names in rock music, as well as larger-than-life games, drinks, live tattoing, and the “Chapel of Love,” where couples can be legitimately married by a minister at the festival.
Those at the festival on Thursday should be sure to check out Static-X. After the death of their frontman, Wayne Static, their new lead singer, “Xer0,” will be wearing a mask of his predecessor, in an either terrifying or touching tribute to Static.
Regardless of if they’re there to get married, tattooed, wasted, or perhaps to listen to the killer lineup, visitors are sure to have a good time at the jam-packed festival.
