In January, several Madison concert venues are hosting the 10th annual Wisconsin Fest, a celebration of local musicians. The event will spotlight nine different music genres across four nights, with Metal Fest, Bluegrass Fest, Folk Fest and more, featuring a diverse group of performers — both musically and personally. 

“Metal in general is sort of a polarizing word,” says Ty Christian, the singer of Lords of the Trident. “I think this show presents an opportunity for somebody who might not initially be into metal to have a little smorgasbord of all the really interesting sub-genres.”
