The First Annual Bradfest had something to please every musical palate and an incredibly diverse line-up of talented musicians and performers. Music spanned the gamut from rock and folk to alternative country, rockabilly, robots and more.

In keeping with Brad’s wacky and fun-loving spirit, BradFest 2010 also featured entertaining interludes of absurdity and belly-dancing. Download the lineup from BradFest 2010 or see the list below.
