Great Variety Of Music Acts Announced For This Year’s Big E
It looks like it's gonna be another great year for the Big E, Berkshire County. We've known for a little while now some of the musical acts that will be performing at the Big E Arena for this year's state fair like Nelly, Sublime with Rome, Brantley Gilbert, and the Dropkick Murphys.
However, I'm happy to report, the Big E just announced on Tuesday the lineup for 2022's Court of Honor stage. And it's a good one, covering almost every musical genre from oldies, classic rock, blues, country, alternative, and hip-hop.

Like I said, a little bit of everything this year. If you love music, you should find at least one of these artists highly enjoyable, hopefully, 4 or 5. Best part? All Court of Honor stage performances are free with the purchase of admission to the Big E.
I'm ready. This year's Big E kicks off on September 16th. For more info, please visit the Big E's website here.
