Country Thunder rolls through Kenosha County July 21-24 | Local News

TOWN OF RANDALL – Country Thunder returns to the Town of Randall festival site on Thursday July 21 with country music star Lee Brice headlining the festival’s main stage on opening night.

Over four days, festival-goers can catch performances from rising stars like Maggie Rose to superstars like Morgan Wallen. He was scheduled to perform at Country Thunder in 2021, but canceled his entire tour that summer, following a backlash that occurred earlier this year when video surfaced of Wallen using a racial slur. He has since apologized.

The music festival takes place near Twin Lakes Thursday through Sunday, July 21-24, at the festival site on Highway P, just west of Twin Lakes.

Country Thunder, which now hosts four festivals in the United States and two festivals in Canada, got its start in Wisconsin and has returned every year except 2022, when COVID-19 halted live events.

Also have rain gear on hand and be prepared for rapid weather changes.

The festival attracts some 100,000 people each year over its four days. Be safe there and have fun.
