Board OK's License and Camping for Music Festival
Alpine Valley Music Theatre near Est Troy, Wis., received final approval Monday (Feb. 28) for its 2011 concert license and campground for concertgoers, the Janesville Gazette reported.
David Shaw, Alpine Valley general manager, said the campground will be a convenience for music lovers who travel long distances to see performers at the venue in La Fayette Township.
The campground also will be noticed by bands as they decide what locations to play this summer, he said.
"Bands like playing places that are very appealing to their fans," Shaw said.
The Walworth County Executive Committee approved the license Monday, capping an effort by Alpine Valley that began in November to gain approval for a campground. Alpine Valley received a zoning variance from the county Feb. 17.
