PrideFest in Milwaukee broke a big, shiny number with its 2023 edition, which attracted 42,603 people to Henry Maier Festival Park — the most ever for the event’s three-day format.

In a social post Wednesday, organizers brought our attention to another record they set each of the last two years: the number of local entertainers who help make the event the incredible spectacle it’s become.

PrideFest shared that accomplishment in the hopes of doing it again for the 2024 festival, which takes place June 6-8. They’re looking for talent from the Milwaukee area and across the state of Wisconsin to perform across the grounds and on the festival’s five stages, with a particular emphasis on the LGBTQ+ community.

The process happens entirely online and starts with this form that collects a variety of information, including basic contact info, the type of act, performing experience and web/social links, among other things. The deadline to complete registration is April 30, so if you’re interested in being part of the PrideFest Milwaukee entertainment lineup for 2024, head over to the online form before then.
