‘Herd Immunity Fest’ Is Real + Static-X, Nonpoint + More to Play

Yes, the Herd Immunity Festival in Ringle, Wisconsin is indeed real, despite repeated warnings over the last three months from countless public officials of various rank against exactly this type of thing amid a devastating worldwide pandemic. The three-day indoor event is set for July 16-18 and will feature Static-X, Nonpoint, Dope, a reunited Bobaflex and more.

The name of the fest embraces the concept of a population’s ability to resist the spread of a contagion, typically achieved through the use of vaccines. The threshold is reached when a certain percentage of the population has built up an immunity to a given contagion, bringing the risk of community spread to nearly nil.

A study done by CovidActNow indicates that only three states —New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts — are on track to properly contain the coronavirus at this point, with case numbers surging to record highs in various states.

Still, the festival’s organizers view the weekend activities as a necessary component in mitigating the stress of everyday life brought on by the pandemic and the resulting nationwide economic closures.

Other acts set to perform at the Herd Immunity Fest at the Q & Z Expo Center include Flaw, Blacktop Mojo, Metallica and AC/DC tribute bands (One and Thunderstruck, respectively), Kaleido and more. View the daily lineups below and, for more information, head here.
