Friends at the Hinterland Songs Festival used Friday drenched in rain. On Saturday, they have been drenched in sweat.

A energetic working day two at the St. Charles showcase featured sets from up-and-coming songwriting star Pleasure Oladokun and 2020 Grammy nominees The Teskey Brothers, though uproarious performances by a pair of 2023 breakout stars, Noah Kahan and Zach Bryan, punctuated a drier, humid night time at Hinterland.

Bryan, acknowledged for his hit “One thing in the Orange” and Kahan, now at the peak of TikTok fame for his “Dial Drunk” collaboration with Publish Malone drew a swarm of enthusiasts to the Madison County tunes pageant. The two artists very first hit the competition scene two yrs in the past, mainly as unknowns.
