More About SUMMERFEST in Milwaukee

More stages and picture-perfect spaces on the lakefront, local eats, drinks, shopping, and even an all-new children’s area for your up-and-coming little rockers.

Located in Downtown Milwaukee, we're only a 10-minute drive from Mitchell International Airport.


Countless Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famers, One Hit Wonders, Innovators and Entertainers have performed on our stages for over 50 years.

NOTE: A separate ticket is required to see the headliners in the Amphitheater, but your Amphitheater ticket includes same-day admission to the festival grounds and other stages.

In addition to the Amphitheater, there are multiple festival stages on the grounds. See more performers becoming legends on our festival stages with one of our ticket / multi-day pass options. Please note Festival tickets/passes are not valid for admission to the Amphitheater shows. on.
