Summerfest’s main stage performers

Summerfest, once again, boasts one of the most diversified rosters of any festival on the planet, with Willow Smith, John Fogerty, Death Cab for Cutie, and the Village People among the outdoor stage headliners announced on Tuesday.

Violent Femmes, Milwaukee-born Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Steve Miller Band, Grammy-nominated blues-rock trio the Record Company (led by Wisconsin native Chris Vos), platinum-selling Christian rock band Skillet (with three members based in Kenosha), and Buffalo Nichols, the up-and-coming blues act from Milwaukee music scene veteran Carl Nichols, are among the performer lineup’s Wisconsin connections.

Summerfest’s vice president of entertainment, Bob Babisch, will retire at the end of 2022 after 46 years of organizing the event, will also supervise the last program.

The performers will play on eight stages, seven of which will be available to Summerfest public entry ticket holders. The American Family Insurance Amphitheater, which seats 23,000 people, will host the festival’s top acts, which will require separate, higher-priced tickets. Get Cheapest Tickets From Here

Summerfest’s vice president of entertainment, Bob Babisch, will retire at the end of 2022 after 46 years of organizing the event, will also supervise the last program.

The performers will play on six phases, seven of which will be available to Summerfest public entry ticket holders. The American Family Insurance Amphitheater, which seats 23,000 people, will host the festival’s top acts, which will need additional, higher-priced tickets.

Jason Aldean, Justin Bieber, Machine Gun Kelly, Halsey, Rod Stewart, and Thomas Rhett are among the already confirmed performers at Summerfest 2022.

The Milwaukee event will be held at Maier Festival Park on the lakefront from June 23 to 25, June 30 to July 2, and July 7 to 9, following the three-day holiday pattern that was inaugurated last year.

If it feels like the previous Summerfest was just a few months ago, you’re right. Summerfest was last held in September to give the COVID-19 vaccination more time to spread out. The festival was compelled to abandon in 2020 because to the epidemic, a first since its start in 1968.

Summerfest had its fewest participation since at least 1986 in 2021, with 409,386 people, thanks to its September run, fewer days of function (it had been an 11-day event for decades), and a significant surge in COVID cases owing to the delta variation. Every year, around 700,000 people pass through the security checkpoints during the event.

Summerfest parent firm Milwaukee World Festival Inc. is anticipating that this year’s festival will be more like the Summerfest people recall, not just by returning to the late-June to early-July run, but also by removing all COVID safety protocols starting in 2021.

Summerfest public entry tickets are $25 for a per day at summerfest.com. Regular entry tickets for seniors (age 62 and over) are $20 at the gate. Children aged 3 to 10 pay $6 at the gate, while children ages 2 and under are admitted free. There are usually a few promotional aspects as well, which have yet to be published for 2022.

On the Summerfest website, multi-day general entry passes are also purchasable. Three-day admissions are $50 (a $10 offers) and nine-day admissions are $100 (a $25 discount) for a short duration. Passes for six days are also offered for $105.

Summerfest amphitheater events tickets can be purchased at the box office and on ticketmaster.com, and include public entry to Summerfest on the date of the show.

Summerfest’s BMO Harris Pavilion tickets for premium seats in sections 1 to 5 five will be on sale next week, with specifics to be revealed.

Cool breezes, a few major lines gaps, increased ticket prices, and four more thoughts from Summerfest.

Summerfest will release its full lineup in late April, with additional headliners to be confirmed in the following weeks.

Summerfest’s parent business, Milwaukee World Festival Inc., is holding a job fair at 114 N. Jackson St. on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Starting earnings will range from $14 to $17 per hour, and jobs will be provided on the spot. More than 2,000 roles are available during the Milwaukee World Festival. Buy Tickets From Here
