It looks like it's gonna be another great year for the Big E, Berkshire County. We've known for a little while now some of the musical acts 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, the Big E just announced on Tuesday the lineup for 2022's Court of Honor stage. And it's a good one, covering almost every musical genre from oldies, classic rock, blues, country, alternative, and hip-hop.
