It’s time to ‘Fight Back’ June 22-23


Fans attending Music Fights Back range in age from 5 to over 70. Everyone is sure to have a memorable time rockin’ for a reason, getting up close to the stage (on their parents shoulders, perhaps) or sitting back in a lawn chair relaxing. For the weekend’s lineup, visit musicfightsback.com. (Submitted photo)

In its fourth year in 2018, Music Fights Back is more than just a little one-time fundraiser with some raffles and a few hundred people. It’s morphed into a two-day rock festival featuring nationally-acclaimed headliners. But, in the end, its intent is as sincere as ever. Music Fights Back remains a cause for kids battling cancer, an opportunity to raise money and purchase digital tablet and MP3 devices so some of the most innocent patients can watch movies, play games and listen to music during cancer treatments. 

This year’s festival will be the weekend of June 22 and 23 on St. Feriole Island in Prairie du Chien. Music will start at 2 p.m. both days. Friday’s headliner is Wayland and Saturday’s is Saliva.

The Flansburgh family knows the farming business quite well. Alan Flansburgh, his wife Kathy, and their five sons Devin, Derek, Dalton, Dustin and Dylan were educated from a young age on what hard work and ambition can create—a life worth living and a farm beautiful enough to show to the entire county. The family is working now to teach others about the wonders of the farm, as they prepare to host the Crawford County Dairy Breakfast on Saturday, June 2, from 6 to 10 a.m. 

In 1996, Alan and Kathy, already seven years into their marriage, bought the family farm from Alan’s parents. As the only son in his family and with a love for field work, Alan felt a responsibility to carry on the farm. With such a transaction, they became the third generation to cultivate the land they now call their home.
