Milwaukee Summerfest: Day 5 Guide

Here’s what’s up for Friday, September 10th at Summerfest, the World’s Largest Music Festival!
Summerfest 2018 Uline Stage and downtown

Summerfest 2021 is in the midst of its second weekend, part of a three-weekend party that runs all the way through Saturday the 18th. 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 5: Friday, September 10th. And here’s the full info and lineup of performers for today and tonight!

Admissions Promo of the Day: It’s “Mary Lou’s Closet Supply Drive” Day, where the first 1,500 Summerfest fans who bring a total of $10 minimum value of hygiene supplies – such as shampoo, deodorant or body wash – to donate to United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha County’s community schools between noon and 3 p.m. – will receive a free Big Gig admission ticket.
