Milwaukee Summerfest: Day 4 Guide

Here’s what’s up for Thursday, September 9th at Summerfest, the World’s Largest Music Festival!
Summerfest 2018 Uline Stage and downtown

Summerfest 2021 kicked off its second weekend with the Jonas Brothers concert at the American Family Amphitheater (a lot of people now call it the AmFamAmp) and now three days and nights of music and fun are in order. 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 4: Thursday, September 9th. And here’s the full info and lineup of performers for today and tonight!
