Every week, Piet and I discuss local and national shows coming to Milwaukee, as well as music news relevant to the city. Read below for news on Summerfest’s opening night and a Milwaukee native punk band doing a show here.
“It is cool that this is like the only festival that you can really do that — you can go from Willie Nelson to Martin Garrix within a couple feet and hear very different kind of stuff.” – Piet Levy
In case you deliberately ignore music news or you want to hear it again…The Big Gig kicks off Wednesday, June 29. It’s insane to think that the first night is almost here and it is packed full of performers. Country legend Willie Nelson takes the BMO Harris Pavilion while EDM Superstar Martin Garrix is at the Miller Lite Stage. There’s more. Fitz & the Tantrums, Weird Al Yankovic, Selena Gomez, Finish Ticket…click here for the full lineup. Also, Direct Hit! is coming to Milwaukee on June 24th.
