Your guide to having a great summer is brought to you by Potawatomi Hotel & Casino and Peoples State Bank.

The Wisconsin State Fair Main Stage is all filled up for 2022, but any proper fair fan knows that's far from the only place to find live music and entertainment during the late-summer spectacular. For instance, there's the Bank Five Nine Amphitheater, the largest free stage at the State Fair, which just announced its lineup of live entertainment for this year's festivities. 

This year's Bank Five Nine Amp headliners include a wide-ranging plethora of performers – from dynamite DJs to boy band tributes, flashback favorites to local legends and even a bodybuilding contest.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
