Organizers for Mile of Music Festival announced the next group of artists on the 2022 lineup on June 9, 2022. This year’s festival, dubbed Mile 9, is set to take place August 4-7 in Downtown Appleton.
Cory Chisel and The Wandering Sons will headline Jones Park on Friday night, August 5 as part of Mile of Music’s ninth annual original music celebration, and Chisel will also again host the return of the A Song Before We Go closing showcase at the Lawrence Memorial Chapel on Sunday, August 7. Chisel’s shows were announced as part of Mile of Music’s latest overall lineup announcement, which included a total of 30 additional singer-songwriters and bands who perform their original songs at the four-day event.
Jamie Kent (Nashville) and Mateo Vosganian of Wild Adriatic (Albany, NY), both five-time Festival alumni, will be guests of the fest and will be performing as artists at-large.
In all, Mile 9 is expected to host 700 live music sets over the four-day schedule with more than 200 artists and music education presenters sharing their talents and teachings.
In the coming weeks, Mile of Music will also highlight their community sponsors, collaborators and partners who come together to make this special event possible. Organizers are currently recruiting more than 500 volunteers.
