This year marks the 30th anniversary of Rock Fest in Cadott, Wisconsin and Lou Brutus returns as host! The 2024 edition in Cadott WI goes from Thursday July 18 to Saturday July 20 with a special bonus bash the night of Wednesday July 17. Lou says, “My concert calendar each year is centered on Rock Fest and I’m stoked to be back for the music and madness!”

This year features another fantastic lineup. It features Shinedown, Jelly Roll, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Chevelle, The Hu, Parkway Drive, Beartooth, 311, Killswitch Engage, Fever 333, Atreyu, From Ashes to New, Sevendust, Dirty Honey, Struggle Jennings, Austin Meade, Stabbing Westward, Saul, Ayron Jones, Lilian, Holy Wars, Another Day Dawns, Blue Felix, Kingdom Collapse, Ignescent, Silent Theory, Uncured, City of the Weak, Living Dead Girl, Sleep Theory, Upon A Burning Body, Citizen Soldier, Quiet Riot, Vince Neil, Psychostick, Shallow Side, and tons of others.

Brutus will definitely be doing another Meet & Greet this year and it will be open to all in attendance, but we won’t have details until we get closer to the festival. He’ll sign and take pictures for as long as his schedule allows. It’s safe to assume that copies of Lou’s book Sonic Warrior and perhaps some other LB merch will be available at the main merch store. However, you should keep in mind that everything available last year sold out very quickly. You will be allowed to bring other items with you to the show for him to sign, so to insure you get a book signed, bring it with you!

In a whirlwind weekend of Rock, LB flew into Los Angeles from the East Coast to get an exclusive listen to the new Stone Sour album.

The band had invited him to come out anytime during the recording process of “Hydrograd.” Realizing things were about to finish, Lou hopped on a plane on a Saturday morning, landed and went directly to the studio. He spent six hours with the band and the staff of Sphere Studios L.A. listening to the record, taking photos, and conducting an interview with Corey Taylor. The one-on-one chat covered the album, upcoming tour with KoRn, and band’s return to Rock Fest Wisconsin.

After his time with the band, Lou returned to directly to the airport and flew home at dawn. Twelve hours in the air for fifteen hours on the ground in total!

Listen for the interview material on hardDrive with Lou Brutus and see the photos on his social nets. You can also relive the whole trip using the #BrutusInLaLaLand hashtag on Twitter and Instagram. Thanks to the band, the crew and the studio for the hospitality. Extra thanks to the band’s photographer Stubs for grabbing images of LB’s visit!
