Can you believe that we’re less than one week away from Summerfest‘s opening day? June 28th kicks off the 50th anniversary of one of the biggest musical festivals in the country, and Milwaukee can’t wait!
If you’ve never been to Summerfest before, you have to go this year. It’s over a week long music festival filled with famous musicians, some of the best food you will ever eat, and great views of the city.
You can purchase a ticket for the entire day at any of the gates, but we’ll tell you how to get in for FREE on opening day sponsored by Johnson Controls and Fox 6. On June 28th, between noon and 3 p.m. at the Mid Gate, anyone who brings in 3 non-perishable food items will receive one FREE ticket to Summerfest. Click here for the link! This includes entrance to the festival grounds and access to all smaller stages.
This year, the opening headliner at the American Family Insurance Amphitheater is the Red Hot Chili Peppers along with Deerhoof and Jack Irons. Other headliners on opening night include Frankie Ballard, Flume, Misterwives, and Spin Doctors.
Summerfest’s 50th Anniversary only happens once, so make sure to head down to the Henry W. Maier Festival Park to join in on the fun!
