With Summerfest 2020 cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its associated safety and logistical challenges, we have to look ahead to Summerfest 2021! It’s the “World’s Largest Music Festival” on Milwaukee’s lakefront. For 11 days, you and nearly 900,000 of your closest friends can enjoy over 1,000 performances from nearly 800 acts on the 75-acre Maier Festival Park grounds.

summerfest2015_169wSummerfest dates back to 1968 and has since become the backdrop for the music industry’s hottest stars, emerging talent and local favorites to create unforgettable live music experiences in a world-class festival setting. Running along Milwaukee’s lakefront nestled within downtown, Discovery World, I-794, and Lake Michigan, Summerfest offers not only music but over 45 food and beverage vendors, four marketplaces offering crafts and wares from all over the world, interactive exhibits, and just cool general fun.

Watch for new announcements, see Summerfest.com for more lineups the timeliest way possible!

Summerfest itself runs Wednesday, June 30th through Sunday, July 11th; it’s closed Monday, July 5th. In 2022, Summerfest will run June 29th – July 10th.

Tickets run $23 per day, but two discount options exist. One involves a “Weekday admission” ticket, which gets you in any time before 4pm weekdays and runs $13; the other is the 11-Day Power Pass. For frequent festival-goers (we average 9-10 days at this thing), the Power Pass is a great deal: $90, and you get admission each day. You can purchase and print tickets online here. Parking lots are available just to the west of the grounds and throughout downtown Milwaukee and the Historic Third Ward. The Milwaukee County Transit System also offers “freeway flyer” express buses to and from the grounds from numerous Park & Ride lots in the metro area.

The Summerfest Grounds can be accessed directly via I-794, U.S. 18, and Highway 32. I-43/94 and Highways 38, 59, and 145 also bring you within a mile of it – which is how far away some people park! Either way, it’s one of the greatest music festivals on the planet and a definite State Trunk Tour recommendation.
