Every Summer on the shores of Lake Michigan, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin Summerfest dominates the music scene with lively crowds, delicious food and drink, and great music from every genre. This year’s festival, set for June 24-28 and June 30-July 5, will be no exception. Joining the 2015 Summerfest lineup are several top country artists, including Keith Urban, Florida Georgia Line, Kip Moore, Martina McBride, Zac Brown Band and many more.
Summerfest began in the 60’s when the mayor of Milwaukee made a visit to Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany. Upon his return, he decided his city could use a similar festival to enliven the economy, as well as tourism.
This year Summerfest spans 11 days and showcases over 800 acts on 11 stages for over 1,000 live performances. Almost nine hundred thousand fans are expected to show to enjoy the two-week-long festival.
Although the festival features all genres, the 2015 Summerfest lineup includes some of the biggest names in country music today.
