Party In The Park at James Madison Park
September 2, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 8:00 pmFree
WSUM’s annual music festival returns, showcasing a wide variety of Wisconsin artists. Milwaukee’s Diet Lite co-headlines, serving catchy power-pop with snotty group vocals and hooky guitar lines. Grungy post-punk outfit Interlay will co-headline behind its 2020 EP Cicada. The Madison-based four-piece offers tortured, expressive vocals and meandering, fraught guitar lines over a focused, driven rhythm section. The third headliner, UW-Madison student Deryk G, performs behind his latest release Peace In Armageddon, which blends catchy, funky pop with thoughtful, intentional R&B.
The full Party In The Park lineup, boasting nine artists and eight DJs—many of whom represent the current, standout program schedule of students on the airwaves—can be found here. —Emili Earhart
