Party In The Park at James Madison Park

September 2, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 8:00 pm

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

We do not currently produce a listing of events around town, though we would like to in the future. But we do still preview shows, screenings, and other events around town in our stories.

If you are looking for a good local events calendar, we strongly recommend visiting our friends at Madison Minutes.
