Cypress Hill will light up Summerfest’s BMO Harris Pavilion

Summerfest’s BMO Harris Pavilion got its seventh headliner Monday morning: Cypress Hill, who will take the stage on the festival’s second Thursday, June 29.

Last March, the California rap group released its 10th album, Back in Black, which the A.V. Club called “a return to Cypress Hill’s gangsta-rap roots after several years of dabbling in dubstep and alternative hip-hop, and the result is a tight and focused record.” That effort came more than three decades since their 1991 debut, and just a couple months shy of the 30th anniversary of Black Sunday and its two Grammy-nominated songs, “Insane In The Brain” and “I Ain’t Goin’ Out Like That.”

Like the rest of the BMO Harris Pavilion lineup, this one will have first-come-first-served general seating the day of the show. But if you want to grab reserved seats, which include admission to the festival, those tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. this Friday, March 17, online via Ticketmaster and at the Summerfest box office.
