“From first-timers, including Chance the Rapper, Miley Cyrus, and Run the Jewels, to Fest favorites including Dave Matthews Band, T-Pain, Styx and Chris Stapleton, our lineup continues to be one of the most diverse and unique in the industry.”
The music festival plans to use a variety of safety protocols due to coronavirus which could include mask requirements, vaccine passports and rapid testing, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
This is amazing news. The United States really is healing if we’re being allowed to attend large festivals like this again. It’s been a rough year for everyone, but it really does seem like everything is starting to get closer to that old normal we all miss and love.
