Summerfest: The world's largest music festival

Festival

Love music? How does the world’s largest music festival sound? It’s Summerfest, and it happens right here in Milwaukee on the shore of Lake Michigan! 

For 11 days in late June and early July, Henry Maier Festival Park is the place to be for all music fans. Rolling Stone called it one of the U.S.'s "must-see musical festivals." With over 800 acts playing on 11 stages, you’ll find alternative, rock, country, R&B, pop, reggae, and more, from national headliners to indie bands. Your Summerfest ticket gets you access to all 10 of the ground stages, plus, the 23,000-seat American Family Insurance Amphitheater hosts some of the biggest tours in music for nightly ticketed concerts. All of this takes place right on the lakefront, in Milwaukee's scenic permanent lakefront festival grounds.

The 2019 Summerfest lineup included:

  • Jason Aldean
  • Bon Iver
  • Zac Brown Band
  • Lionel Richie
  • Jennifer Lopez
  • The Outlaw Music Festival
  • The Killers
  • and more!

More than music

As if more music than any one person can listen to wasn’t enough, that’s not all Summerfest has to offer. A variety of popular Milwaukee restaurants are on-site offering tasty treats to keep you fueled up and ready to rock, and you can shop for everything from music-themed jewelry to puppets at unique vendors at four shopping marketplaces. The Northwestern Mutual Children’s Theater & PlayZone will keep kids enraptured all day, with performances by magicians, jugglers, dance groups, puppets, and more.

Spend the day people-watching at the lakefront, shopping, or enjoying local and emerging artists on the grounds stages – the headliners start at 8 and 10 p.m. If you come on opening night, make sure to head for the lagoon to get a spot to watch the Big Bang fireworks.

There’s a reason that Summerfest is a Milwaukee tradition and the highlight of the summer for many attendees, both locals and visitors – it’s a festival experience like no other!
