Milwaukee World Festival Inc.
There are music festivals, and then there’s Milwaukee’s Summerfest. Calling itself the World’s Largest Music Festival, it boasts over 800 acts on 11 stages over 11 days, with a lineup that seems to include pretty much everybody.
The Wisconsin event , which runs from June 25 through the 29, and then from July 1 through 6, boasts 75 headliners, including Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Michael McDonald, The Fray, A Great Big World, Melissa Etheridge, Bonnie Raitt, REO Speedwagon, Kool and the Gang, Los Lonely Boys, and many, many more.
Tickets for most Summerfest shows only cost 16 bucks for general admission, $42 for three days, and $70 for all 11 days — far less than comparable music festivals. However, the series of headlining concerts at Milwaukee’s Marcus Amphitheater cost more to attend. Visit Summerfest.com for more information.
