Country Fest Music Festival

Country Music is defined as a blend of many genres of music such as folk, Celtic, gospel played on a stringed instrument and extremely popular in the southern states of the USA.  In simpler words, it can be called the cowboy or rural songs played on instruments such as banjos, violins and guitars. This type of music evolved in 1920 and is now regarded as one of the popular genres of music. Its popularity spread far and wide and Canada and Australia have their own form of country music.

The Country Fest is a major country music festival held in Cadott, Wisconsin. This four day festival began in 1987 and takes place in late June. The heavy weights in country music; groups as well as individuals enthrall the public with non stop music. The event lasts for four days. An important feature of country music festivals in USA is camping. With an average of more than 50,000 fans attending the events (Country Fest pulls the largest crowd), accommodations can be a problem. That is why people prefer to camp and at Country Fest the campground is the largest with 8,000 campsites. The fans are provided every facility so that they can enjoy their stay and the wonderful music which brings them out in the open.

Many big names such as Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley, Sugarland and Brooks and Dunn have driven the crowds wild with ecstasy in previous events.  This (2011) year’s impressive line up for Country Fest Music festival includes Miranda Lambert,  Grammy Winner Lady Antebellum, Carrie Underwood, Trace Atkins and Justin Moore to name a few.

The festival promises quality entertainment for fans of all age groups. Children up to the age of six are admitted free if accompanied by an adult with a ticket.
