Americana music festival Flannel Fest celebrates 6 years of keeping Wisconsin warm

Now in its 6th year, Flannel Fest has become an annual celebration of local, regional and national Americana music. Bust out your favorite flannel attire and join the fall-inspired party with some of Wisconsin's most talented and decorated Wisco-Americana artists. Trapper Schoepp headlined the 2019 event, along with The Mascot Theory, Beth Kille Band, The North Code, and The Listening Party.  Schoepp’s latest album Primetime Illusion was produced by Wilco’s Patrick Sansone and features the song “On, Wisconsin” - a song Bob Dylan started in 1961 and Schoepp recently finished it, then the two artists published the song together.

Flannel Fest South 2019 was held at the High Noon Saloon in Madison, WI on Friday, November 8, 2019 in partnership with Heat For Heroes. The fest also returned to Appleton, WI for a third straight year with Flannel Fest North being held at Gibson Music Hall in Appleton, WI on Saturday, November 9, 2019 in partnership with Spats and Mile of Music Productions.  

Thank you Flannel Fest for your support. It made such a difference in keeping the heat and power on for so many in need in our community. We are very much looking forward to this year’s event.

  • Flannel Fest 2020 Virtual Music Event Celebrates 7 Years of Keeping Wisconsin Warm

    Virtual format during COVID-19 pandemic successfully raises funds and awareness

    Now in its 7th year, Flannel Fest has become an annual celebration of local, regional and national Americana music benefitting the Keep Wisconsin Warm/Cool Fund (KWW/CF). Due to the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020, most live music events have had to postpone until 2021, or they have created virtual events on the internet. Flannel Fest 2020 did the latter, with a successful online and virtual Facebook Live music event held on November 21 that raised over $15,000 for KWW/CF thanks to a 2 to 1 match challenge. While the event was free for anyone to attend, donations were strongly encouraged via virtual tip jars.
