2018 Artist Insiders

I’ve been hanging on to Rock Fest 2018. Maybe it’s due to stubbornness, maybe due to the lack of insanity with 25k+ people milling around my “office.” It’s been kind of quiet around here, but there’s still a buzz of next year, how we’re gonna make it even better, and who we’re gonna have on the stages rocking the shit out of Cadott.

While Rock Fest usually releases it’s lineup the first month of the festival year, that doesn’t stop hundreds of people from purchasing VIP tickets & Reserved Lawn seats or renewing their campsites.

One thing I’m thankful for is the YouTube playlist that Lou Brutus from hardDrive put together. Lou hosted Rock Fest again this year, balancing the Main Stage Stage introductions with artist interviews, photography, and meeting thousands of fans.

Lou’s spent over seventeen years on Sirius XM Satellite Radio and his nationally syndicated “hardDrive with Lou Brutus” is now in its 23rd season. Read more about Lou’s endless qualifications in this post.



Anyway—this playlist he put together features RF 2018 artists like Adelitas Way, Nothing More, Bush, Godsmack, Sevendust, Rise Against, and so many more.

Lou asks these artists about things like upcoming albums, the life of touring, and melt-down moments.

He interviewed Wayland—and lead guitarist Mitch Arnold entered the interview immediately after visiting Rock Fest’s medics. Did you know Mitch swallowed a bite of cucumber and got lodged in his throat? Yeah, the band talks about that.


Fill the Rock Fest void with intelligent and entertaining content: visit the website of Lou Brutus.


Lou’s got the system down. His interviews deliver an inside scoop on artists and help connect you deeper to the bands you already love.

So, while we wait to kick Rock Fest 2019 into full ass-kicking mode, check out Lou’s Rock Fest 2018 interviews. If you like what you see, there’s way more interview content on his website at LouBrutus.com.

And here’s that awesome recap vid for you to watch, again and again:
