Rock Fest 2016: Day 1

Hello, readers! Every year, at least for the past 4 years, I have accompanied my uncles, dad, brother, and friend, Mackenzie, to the best festival all year: Rock Fest. Rock Fest, which happens in July of every year in the small Wisconsin town of Cadott, brings together a very large group of rock fans (we consider each other a ‘family’), some from all parts of the U.S., for 3 days of amazing food, music, and memories. It’s no secret that I, a die hard rocker thanks to my father raising me on Rock N’ Roll music, love Rock Fest- I hold a countdown for it every year! I did, however, notice that, in all my years of going to Rock Fest, I had failed to ever document it and chronicle the festival on the blog. I wondered why hadn’t I chronicled my time at such an amazing festival and weekend, one that I call the best time of the year? After finding out that I really had no excuse not to document it, I decided that it would finally make it to the blog. So, let’s get to it!

It did, however, make me feel better that I heard Nothing More and even saw a few of their songs during our rainy walk. Continue reading
