The 2018 Summerfest Emerging Artists Series

Along with Summerfest and Shepherd Express, 88Nine is putting on the Emerging Artists Series at the Johnson Controls World Sound Stage during the Big Gig to highlight the hottest up-and-coming talent each evening of the festival.

Not to brag, but we know what’s up. Many of the artists in past series have gone on to become nationally and internationally known, including Walk The Moon, Nathaniel Rateliff, Maren Morris, X Ambassadors, BØRNS, The Record Company and many others.

So, don’t miss these shows if you want to be able to say, “I saw them before they were cool.”
