The weather seems to be teasing us with a bit of warmth, and warm weather always means outdoor concerts and festivals. Summerfest is one of the most anticipated summer events with tons of big names from various genres of music set to perform. This year’s line up has just been announced.
From June 25th-29th and then again from July 1st-6th, there will be about 75 headliners playing. The biggest names to look for include Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Dave Matthews Band, Outkast, Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, Motley Crue, Zac Brown Band, Fall Out Boy, Paramore and Gary Clark Jr.
Unlike some other festivals that charge hundreds of dollars 3 days, this one that is set in Milwaukee, is only $16 for GA (general admission). It is $9 for a weekday and $42 for three days. If you love every act and want to go all 11 days (yes 11 days) it’s only $72. I’ve paid more than that to go to one concert. There are also tickets to shows in the Marcus Amphitheater, but those are sold separately.
