Last blast: WJJO's Sonic Boom brings 13 bands to Janesville
JANESVILLE—Labor Day might have passed, but people can get one last hurrah out of summer at Sonic Boom on Saturday, Sept. 13.
Madison radio station WJJO is sponsoring the daylong outdoor concert at the Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport on Highway 51 between Janesville and Beloit.
The 13-band lineup includes hard-rock bands Day To Remember, Bring Me The Horizon, All That Remains, Hatebreed, Dope, Nonpoint, Motionless in White, Bobaflex, Fozzy, Avatar, Chiodos, Starset and Devour The Day.
Bands will perform on about 50 acres near Highway 51 in an area fenced off from the airport runways.
Food and beverages will be available. Some vendors will accept cash only, so ATMs will be located on-site.
The music festival is the same weekend as the World Water Ski Show hosted by the Rock Aqua Jays at Traxler Park in downtown Janesville.
General admission tickets cost $34.50 and can be bought at the Alliant Energy Center Coliseum box office in Madison and Wal-Mart in Janesville, according to the Sonic Boom website. Re-entry is not allowed.
Concertgoers can get free tickets if they donate three nonperishable food items or an unwrapped, new toy (one toy per ticket) to ECHO, 65 S. High St., Janesville, between 1 and 2:30 p.m. today.
Free tickets also are available for people who donate nonperishable food items, winter clothes for adults and children, or cash between 4 and 5:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 8, at the Salvation Army, 514 Sutherland Ave., Janesville.
