Brat Fest plans live event in 2022

Brat Fest will be back on Willow Island at the Alliant Energy Center over Memorial Day weekend in 2022, according to a release from the organization. The event will be following local health department public health orders and recommendations while planning the 40th year of the event. More than 70 local and Midwest entertainers are scheduled to perform with headliners Joe Nichols and 38 Special on the main stage. The in-person event was canceled in 2020 and 2021 and the organization held a virtual fundraising event for Brat Fest charities.
