Summerfest is being held on three weekends this September due to the coronavirus pandemic. Just be aware that you will need a negative COVID test at least 72 hours before or attendees need to be fully vaccinated before you get to the festival. If you don’t have proof for either of these, you will not be admitted into the festival grounds.  

Make note that all transactions are cashless due to the pandemic. That means credit card or debit card only. Masks will be required in certain areas of the festival grounds.  

There will be many concerts to see. Some of the shows that I personally think that are interesting are; Luke Bryan, Jonas Brothers w/ Kelsea Ballerini, and Kesha. These artists are known for putting on amazing shows and getting their fans involved. 

Also some of the other artists that will appear are Miley Cyrus, Green Day, Chance the Rapper, Twenty One Pilots, Brett Eldridge, and many, many more.  

Tickets are only $23 plus tax to get in and no cost to see the free stages but you’ll need to purchase a concert ticket to see anyone in the American Family Insurance Amphitheater and BMO Harris Stage. 

Some of the free stage artists are; G-Easy, Diplo, Flo Rida, T-Pain, Ludacris, Nelly, Fitz and the Tantrums, Jesse McCartney, Shaggy and so many more to choose from. There is also a BMX stunt team at Summerfest that will be putting on a show.  

You will always find other street performers throughout the festival. There is also a skyline that you can ride for a small fee to get from one end of the park to the other. There is a small splash pad to cool down in. They have contests to win and freebies to get also. There really is something for everyone.  All in all, Summerfest has a lot to offer and will be a lot of fun. Just be careful and stay aware of your surroundings.
