We play at 4:30 on Thursday. (:

People Fest is a one of a kind music festival nestled deep in the hills of south western Wisconsin at Driftless Music Gardens. Our family friendly festival features camping and music of all genres ranging from Funk, Soul, Blues, Jam, Rock, Bluegrass, Folk, Reggae and beyond.

People Fest is our band’s baby. It’s a celebration of music and good people that embarks on it’s 11th year. The People Brothers Band has played and hosted the event since it’s humble beginning as a backyard weekend of music & camping at Delvis’s Cabin at Canyon Park. Every year more and more good people lend their hand to help us put on this event by volunteering their time. The event has its roots in community and has become a family friendly place for people to enjoy music. Our family , “The People” now make People Fest what it has become today. People of all ages and all kinds are welcome along with music from all types of genres. People Fest has grown over the years and is now held at Driftless Music Gardens in Hillsboro, Wisconsin. Camping is encouraged and help keeping the land as clean as it was before we arrived is always a priority of ours.

Please be sure to visit our website driftlessmusicgardens.com for all the details and updates on the festival. We pride ourselves in providing a family friendly event which provides fun for all ages. We host some of the best local, regional and national acts our region has to offer.
