Madison Wisconsin’s kick-off to summer; The World’s Largest Brat Fest will host Hip Hop groups for the first time in its 40-year history
MADISON, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES, May 21, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Brat Fest, the much-awaited annual celebration of Wisconsin’s culinary delight, is set to become a haven for music enthusiasts as Drew Lines and Caesar Reddington take the stage on May 28th, 2023. With a staggering attendance of 150,000 people over three days, Brat Fest has earned its reputation as a must-attend event for bratwurst lovers and music lovers alike.
Drew Lines & Caesar Reddington will be performing on the Grand Stage, the largest stage at Brat Fest, and are among the very first Hip Hop artists to ever perform in the event’s 40-year history. Alongside acclaimed artists Kid N Play, Tone Loc, Royal Bliss, The Black Moods, and Scotty Austin, the lineup promises a thrilling day of unforgettable music and high-energy Hip Hop and Rock performances on Memorial Weekend.
Adding to the excitement, Brat Fest will also feature notable acts like “Saving Abel,” “Slaughter,” “Steven Adler of Guns and Roses,” “Rick Monroe,” “Frankie Ballard,” “Wayland,” “Michael Alexander & Big Whiskey,” and “Gravel,” among others. The festival boasts three stages, each hosting a wide array of talented musicians throughout the weekend.
Brat Fest holds a rich history rooted in a humble beginning. In 1983, Tom Metcalfe and his wife, Margaret, started a small brat fry as a gesture of gratitude to their grocery store customers. Over the years, the demand for their mouth-watering bratwursts grew exponentially. Embracing their community-oriented values, the Metcalfe’s began donating the proceeds to organizations supported by volunteer sausage servers.
The festival’s popularity soared, leading to its proclamation as the “World’s Largest Brat Fest” in 1999. Since then, the event has continued to break records, with a staggering 189,432 brats sold in 2004. In 2005, Brat Fest found a new home at Willow Island, located at the Alliant Energy Center, to accommodate the ever-increasing crowds. The festival has been recognized as the “Best Outdoor Festival” by Madison.com readers in 2008, 2009, and 2010.
Brat Fest’s success is also indebted to Johnsonville, the official brat sponsor since 2001. Johnsonville’s generous donation of 150,000 brats in 2006 solidified its partnership with the festival. In 2011, Johnsonville took their support a step further by donating all brats served at Brat Fest, ensuring the event’s continued success in giving back to the community.
