Considering it lasts 11 days and features some 800 acts, Milwuakee’s Summerfest rightfully bills itself as “The World’s Largest Music Festival”. But it’s also one of the longest-running music events anywhere in the world, and this year marks 50th fest since launching in 1968. Unsurprisingly, the mega-fest is going even bigger to commemorate the occasion.
Taking place over June 28th – July 2nd and July 4th – 9th, Summerfest will celebrate its gold year with yet another jam-packed lineup. Flume, The Shins, Tegan and Sara, Death From Above 1979, Girl Talk, Miike Snow, BJ the Chicago Kid, Alessia Cara, Bleachers, Car Seat Headrest, Aesop Rock with Rob Sonic, Jamila Woods, Saba, San Fermin, Whitney, Big Thief, Peter Wolf, Guster, Hippo Campus, and Mondo Cozmo are just some of the acts that will descend on Henry Maier Festival Park over the two weekends.
Oh, and there will also be performances from A Day to Remember, Steve Miller Band, Huey Lewis & The News, Peter Frampton, Third Eye Blind, Dispatch, Michelle Branch, Soul Asylum, Collective Soul, House of Pain, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Lee Fields & The Expressions, Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears, Pokey LaFarge, Chicano Batman. And that’s still not everyone!
