Summerfest was founded back in 1968 in downtown Milwaukee. In the ’70s, it moved to the lakefront on an abandoned missile site. Over the next few decades, more permanent stages were added. By the ’80s, over 850,000 people attended the fest, and the huge Marcus Amphitheater opened in 1987.

The venue has 10 stages besides the Marcus Amphitheater, named the BMO Harris Pavilion, Miller Lite Oasis, Briggs & Stratton Big Backyard, Harley-Davidson Roadhouse, ULine Warehouse, Johnson Controls World Sound Stage, U.S. Cellular Connection Stage, JoJo’s Martini Lounge, Gruber Law Offices Sportzone and Northwestern Mutual Children’s Theater & Playground.
Summerfest’s 50th anniversary will be celebrated in 2017, and we’re sure the lineup for that will be even better!
