Alpine Valley Music Theatre hosting first EDM fest, with Griz

It’s official as of Tuesday: Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy will have its busiest summer of concerts in 19 years. 

And the Live Nation-operated amphitheater is hitting the milestone booking something that hasn’t been held at the 45-year-old venue: an EDM festival.

Sax-playing electronic artist Griz, familiar to Milwaukee audiences with shows at the Rave and Wisconsin Center over the years, announced Tuesday he is hosting his two-day Triple Rainbow festival at Alpine Valley Sept. 16 and 17.

Griz performs at the Wisconsin Center for Jawbreaker Festival's first night Saturday on Oct. 27, 2018.

Camping passes will also be available — $299 for a standard site (up to six people), $499 for an RV campsite (also for up to six). The Walworth County Zoning Agency approved camping for up to 3,324 people in 2016, but it’s rarely been utilized. 

Griz will headline both nights and play different sets. Night one will also include EDM acts LSDream, Tripp St., Eazybaked and Noah B, while night two will feature Clozee, Minnesota, Chee and Tape B.

Presales begin at 10 a.m. Wednesday through, with tickets for the general public going on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.

Prices have not been announced for tickets, but two-day passes will also be available. All concertgoers must be at least 17 years old, according to the event page on Live Nation’s website.

With the Triple Rainbow announcement, Alpine Valley will have at least 10 shows this summer, the most since 2003, when it also held 10 shows. 

Slipknot is scheduled to play the venue’s first show since 2019 with its Knotfest Roadshow June 4. Other Alpine shows this year include Alpine regulars Dave Matthews Band (July 2 and 3), Jimmy Buffett (July 23) and Phish (Aug. 12 to 14), while the reunited Rage Against The Machine are slated to play their first show since 2011 at Alpine Valley July 9.
