$ummerfest worth the price?…..you be the judge.

43 years ago, then Milwaukee Mayor Henry Maier
conjured up an idea to have a festival along Milwaukee’s lake front similar to that of Oktoberfest in Germany. Beers, Brats and Weiner schnitzel….FUN!!!! The food part of his plan is offered, but what Maier did not plan is for the  festival to turn into the largest music festival in the world. With headliners in past years from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Stevie Wonder, to Kanye West this year, the festival, hits all genres of music and that is only at the Marcus Amphitheatre. Summerfest offers over 700 bands on 11 stages, throughout the 11 day run. The schedule is easy to navigate through the webpage.

If you don’t have the coin to drop to see a headliner at the Marcus Amphitheatre there are plenty of popular artists rocking out on the festival grounds from Meatloaf, Kansas and REO for the classic rock lovers to Matisyahu, Michael Franti, and Wiz Khalifa. Weekdays for only $8 and weekends $15. Either way, if you’re looking for a day of food, fun, music and your beverage of choice in my opinion it is well worth the money, as a matter of fact here is a little taste of what you will hear……
