Featuring rock music icons including Five Finger Death Punch, Skillet, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Mastodon, Three Days Grace, Evanescence, Starset, and Of Mice & Men, music fans and festival-lovers alike will want to rock ’n’ roll into the 26th annual Rock Music Festival in Cadott from July 18 to 20. In addition to rock music, Scotty Wiese, a world-class entertainer and magician, will perform magic tricks that mix “magic and music to tell stories and create one-of-a-kind moments at festivals,” according to the Rock Fest website. Food vendors and bar carts will be present throughout the premises for hungry folks looking for a bite to eat or a beer to drink. To make it Instagram-worthy, there will also be lots of photo opportunities available at the venue. Rock Fest also features a “chapel of love” for lovebirds looking to get married or renew their vows. After a day packed full of rock, concert-goers can head over to the “Hammock Haven” to kick back, relax, and get a 10-minute massage. For sports fans, the American Wrestling Federation will host wrestling matches. General admission seating is $99 for one day and $139 for three-day tickets, which gets you into the concert venue. Campsite locations are available. A general campsite costs $115, which includes a parking pass, camper pass, and a campground access pass. Parking costs $12 for one day and $25 for three days and will increase at the gate to $15 for one-day parking and $30 for three-day parking. More information can be found online at rock-fest.com.
