Looks like it’s going to be another great year for Big E, Berkshire County. We’ve known for a little while now about some of the musical groups that will be performing at the Big E Arena for this year’s State Fair, like Nelly, Sublime with Rome, Brantley Gilbert and the Dropkick Murphys.
However, I’m happy to report that the Big E just announced the 2022 Court of Honor stage lineup on Tuesday. blues, country, alternative and hip-hop.

Like I said, a bit of everything this year. If you like music, you should find on less one of those very nice artists, hopefully 4 or 5. The best part? All performances on stage at the Cour d’honneur are free with the purchase of a ticket to the Big E.
I’m ready. This year’s Big E kicks off on September 16. For more information, please visit the Big E website here.
