Madison's summer music fests: Marcia Ball, Bottle Rockets & more

Madison's summer music festival season kicks off this weekend with Brat Fest at Willow Island, where there are more bands than you can shake a bratwurst at!  Check out the Brat Fest website to plan your itinerary.

Next up is the Marquette Waterfront Fest at Yahara Place Park June 8th and 9th. This year, there's a definite international flair, with bands including Tani Diakite and the Afrofunkstars and Hurray For the Riff Raff, from New Orleans.

Jump forward to La Fete De Marquette July 11-14th at South Dickinson and East Washington Avenue on Madison's east side. 105.5 Triple M is excited to be a part of La Fete again this year, as they welcome a wide roster of stars, including Marcia Ball, Kenny Neal and Irma Thomas.

Atwood Summerfest happens July 27th and 28th with a fun list of bands that include the disco group VO5 and even a bluegrass Madonna tribute band!

On the horizon, there's Orton Park Fest August 22-25th, and while a full itinerary has not been published, I did see on the Bottle Rockets website that they'll be there on August 24th.

And that's followed by the Willy Street Fair in September...but I don't want to even think about that, because that marks the END of summer.

Hope to see you out and about at one of these festivals this summer..and if you insist, yes, you may buy me a beer!
