Here at Festing we want to know which Festivals are your favorites. There are a a lot of great festivals around the country. I believe some of the "Best" are located in the greater Chicago area. Lets hear what your favorite Fest is. We will rank and post the results so write in and give us the 3 festivals you feel are the "Best".
Here are The"Festmasters" 3 Best Fests picks.
1) Summerfest, Milwaukee Wis. Great bands and alot to see and do.
2) Downers Grove Heritage Fest, Downers Grove ,Il. Well run and laid out good covers a big area. Again great bands on multiple stages up and down the Fest. Good selection of food and alot of different activities. Family oriented.
3)Last Fling, Naperville. Ill. Always an end of the year favorite for the "Festmaster". I always look forward to the Labor day weekend for this Fest. This fest really delivers with great bands. great food and a beautiful setting. The fest is spread out along the Naperville riverwalk and although there is a ton of people the lay out makes it seem not quite as crowded as other festivals.
So lets hear from you, the"Festmaster " is looking for a couple of great new festivals to check out in 08.
"Bensenville,IL Music in the Park is the best... after the awesome concerts in the park there is a place across the street "Two Chefs" that has a Duo called "Brock and Abrams" playing after the show in the park... one guy played with Hermans Hermits the other guy with The Buckinghams... we stopped in after American English last Wednesday and plan on making a habit of it... they were so entertaining and inviting... Bensenville is worth the trip... and will be going to the show after the show... every time" Posted by:
"One of my favorite festivals is the Washington County Fair in West Bend Wisc.Clean,neat and well organized and easy to get to. They always have great clasic rock bands. They have changed the seating arrangement to see the concerts. They have now made a premium seating area up by the stage(extra $$$$$). You used to be able to get up close and personal with most of the bands. This is a negative but still plenty of seating area to see the bands.Always great bands this year no exception, Blues Traveler, Live, Collective Soul, Styx, Boston. If you have never been there and live close to the Milwaukee area you should check this festival out." Posted by:
