The 2022 Rock Fest will bring a range of rock and metal acts to Cadott, Wisconsin

Music festivals are making a comeback this year, and Wisconsin’s annual rock and metal mainstay, Rock Fest, is making plans for a big 2022. Festival organizers just announced the lineup, which will feature headlining sets from Disturbed, Evanescence and Shinedown, in addition to more than 70 acts performing throughout four nights in Cadott, Wisconsin this summer.

Rock Fest is set for Wednesday, July 13th, through Saturday, July 16th, in Cadott, Wisconsin. For those who want to make a camping weekend of it, more than 7,000 campsites will be available throughout the event.

The festival begins Wednesday night with a special event for three-day ticket holders who get to town early, featuring mix of 1980s and newer musical acts performing, including Firehouse, Lita Ford, Warrant, Otherwise and Islander. On Thursday, the main event kicks off with Disturbed headlining the night and additional appearances by Lamb of God, Theory, Hatebreed, Ded, Ayron Jones, Avatar, Spiritbox and Nita Strauss.

On Friday, Evanescence headlines, with performances throughout the day and evening from Halestorm, The Pretty Reckless, Black Veil Brides, Nothing More, Escape the Fate, John 5 and Butcher Babies. If you’re looking for a day of female-led rock and metal music, Saturday notably features more female performers than the other days of the festival. On Sunday, Shinedown headline, with additional sets from Mudvayne, Skillet, Motionless in White, Jelly Roll, Starset, Shaman’s Harvest, From Ashes to New, All Good Things and The Warning.
