This weekend, a bunch of artists rocked the stage at Madison’s Revelry Music and Arts Festival. The packed University of Wisconsin crowd saw performances from Chance The Rapper and The Social Experiment, Mick Jenkins, AlunaGeorge, Until The Ribbon Breaks, The Chainsmokers, Nick Hakim, LordPrez, and many more! And not only did we capture some great shots from the festival, our photographer Dan Garcia got some great footage as well.
A few years ago Madison’s Revelry Music and Arts Festival booked Chance The Rapper for a small performance, and for a crowd of less than a couple hundred. A lot has changed since then, and the numbers showed last night. Performing a headlining set for the University of Wisconsin crowd, Chance The Rapper and The Social Experiment shut down Mad-Town with a number of his Acid Rap hits, along with his new music as well, and this time for a crowd of thousands!
Chano wasn’t the only one to hit the Revelry stage though. This year, fans saw great performances from Chicago’s Mick Jenkins, AlunaGeorge (‘You Know You Like It’), Until The Ribbon Breaks, The Chainsmokers, Nick Hakim, LordPrez, and many more! If you weren’t there this year, you definitely missed out and you won’t want to skip next year, as the festival will only continue to grow.
Wisconsin Chance The Rapper fans, have no fear, as Chance WILL NOT be cancelling his upcoming and headlining performance this weekend at the University of Wisconsin’s Revelry Music and Arts Festival. Although festival representatives have been staying busy this past week, telling fans that Chance was still scheduled to perform despite Chance’s tweet saying that his illness was preventing him from performing at his upcoming shows, Chance took to Twitter less than an hour ago to say that he is feeling 100% and “ready to kill every show this week.” Get hyped Madison!
This year’s festival, which takes place on UW’s campus on May 2nd (the same day as Madison’s infamous Mifflin Block Party), will feature performances from The Chainsmokers, Mick Jenkins, Alunageorge, Until the Ribbon Breaks, Nick Hakim, and more! 22 artists… 10 hours… 3 stages.

We just got back from Coachella, and already we are getting excited to travel to our next music festival. While the next fest on our radar is definitely on a smaller scale, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Ever since the 2013 announcement of Madison, Wisconsin’s Revelry Music & Arts Festival, I have been a fan. For years the live artist recruiting by the University of Wisconsin was disappointing, and this is coming from a Badger of seven long years. Revelry changed that, balancing a student-run organization’s budget by drawing in some of the biggest emerging names across several different genres. And now that I have since graduated, I am excited to return as a photographer and journalist. Continue reading Revelry Music & Arts Festival: A 2015 Artists Guide→
Doing its part in changing the way music festivals are announced, the University of Wisconsin’s Revelry Music and Arts Festival revealed their 2015 lineup through tagging the acts with spray paint. This year the festival, which takes place on the same day as Madison’s infamous Mifflin Block Party, will feature performances from The Chainsmokers, Mick Jenkins, Alunageorge, Until the Ribbon Breaks, Nick Hakim, and a headlining set from Chance the Rapper and The Social Experiment. Chance, as many Badgers know, helped the Badgers kick off their inaugural festival years ago, just days after the release of Chance’s critically acclaimed Acid Rap mixtape. Revelry takes place on May 2nd, 2015 at the University of Wisconsin (the alma mater of our Editor-in-Chief). Check out the lineup poster below and get your tickets now!
