Summerfest 2021 is finishing its first weekend with more events today, ahead of a break before it starts up again next Thursday the 9th. This year, Summerfest runs Thursdays through Saturdays, each weekend kicking off with a Wednesday concert at the newly-remodeled American Family Insurance Amphitheater.

Speaking of, Summerfest is requiring proof of COVID vaccination or a negative test within the previous 72 hours of entry, so be sure to bring that as you go. Masks are recommended for indoor activity (restrooms, for example), but not required. Grounds are open from noon until midnight, per usual.

So, it’s Summerfest DAY 3: Saturday, September 4th. And here’s the full info and lineup of performers for today and tonight!
