As I’ve mentioned many times before, one of my favorite summer pastimes is to attend at least one concert at Alpine Valley. Last year, it was the Pearl Jam 20th anniversary show, the year before that I saw the Dave Matthews Band, Jack Johnson, and Phish. The Alpine Valley 2012 lineup looks stellar this year and I just might have to go to all of the shows on the schedule. Here’s a look at the Alpine Valley 2012 lineup:
- Phish– Saturday, June 30th & Sunday, July 1st
- Dave Matthews Band–Friday, July 6th & Saturday, July 7th
- Jimmy Buffett–Saturday, August 25th
- The Tour: KISS & Motley Crue–Saturday, September 8th
For those of you that have never attended a show at Alpine Valley, I suggest that you go to one! There’s nothing like seeing a concert against the backdrop of the scenic countryside of Wisconsin. When attending a show at Alpine Valley, it’s important to note that traffic can get congested once you get near the venue, so you’ll want to leave with plenty of time to get to the show. Depending on where you find parking, prepare for a longer walk to your seats. It’s fun to tailgate beforehand in the parking lot, so be sure to stock up on your favorite food and beverages. Leaving the parking lot after the show can also take a little bit of time, so don’t expect on leaving in a hurry. If it rains and you have lawn seats, you’ll want to bring a raincoat and/or a blanket to sit upon. Concerts at Alpine Valley are always a good time, so you can rest assured that you won’t be disappointed.
