There are few better musical pairings than rock and country. Well, Lakefront Music Fest is that mixture in festival form. With one day devoted to classic rock and the other devoted to country music, this festival is an absolute match made in heaven.
But before you head to Prior Lake, Minnesota, this summer, there are some things you should know. Who’s playing? How much are the tickets? What are the logistics? Well, here’s everything you’ll need to know about Lakefront 2022.
Who Is Headlining at Lakefront Music Fest 2022?
The biggest question on everybody’s mind about Lakefront is, “Who is headlining?” This year’s lineup is incredible, and each night will close out with artists who are at the top of their fields.
Get To Know Sammy Hagar & The Circle
Sammy Hagar & The Circle are a classic rock supergroup that was formed in 2014. Led by former Montrose and Van Halen vocalist Sammy Hagar and supported by original Van Halen Bassist Michael Anthony, this group has more experience than most when it comes to rock.
This will be Hagar’s first-ever appearance at Lakefront, but he is no stranger to music festivals. He’s performed in dozens of them over his 40+ years in the music business. Hagar is only performing a few shows around the US this year, so fans will be coming from far and wide to hear this legend perform on a massive stage.
Get To Know Toby Keith
Toby Keith needs no introduction. Keith has spent over two decades at the top of country music. The first song he ever released back in the day was the most played country song of the 90s, and he’s been putting out incredible country music ever since.
Keith is going on tour this summer, playing at festivals and fairgrounds throughout the US and Canada, but this is his first time playing at Lakefront. Few artists could close out a fantastic day of country better than Toby Keith, so July 9th is a day you’re not going to want to miss.
