Rap, hip hop, country, rock….these are just some of the music genres played all around the world. These artists and bands have to play their music somewhere don’t they? I am a huge lover of music festivals. There are SO many here in the United States, and even other countries. Some of the most well-known music festivals are Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Ultra, Tomorrowland, and Summerfest.
However, I’m here to tell you about Summerfest! This is one of my favorite music festivals to attend, and can you guess when it takes place? SUMMMMMMMER. Held at the Henry Maier Festival Park in Milwaukee, WI, this festival brings in some of the best performers around. It lasts for a total of 11 days in June and July, and there are over 1,000 performances…. One. Thousand. Crazy, huh? They have 11 stages for artists to perform on, and it’s jam packed from noon to midnight with die hard fans. Since 1999 it’s been recognized as “The World’s Largest Music Festival,” by the Guinness World Records.
Ticket prices are very reasonable for Summerfest, compared to other music festivals. I mean, some festivals are sooo expensive, there’s just no way they’re gettin my money. This year, you can buy an 11-day power pass for only $90 which allows one admission per day to the festival grounds. Now that’s a good deal. You can also purchase a 3-day pass for $48, and general admission tickets are only $20 per day. For all other great ticket deals please check out their website: http://summerfest.com
The lineups each year are AWESOME! Here is the lineup for Summerfest 2017:
