Summerfest 50th Celebration
Who knew that from our humble beginnings in 1968, Summerfest would become a festival that welcomes over 850,000 music fans annually. Through our evolution, we’ve showcased musical greats Bo Diddley, Whitney Houston, Metallica, Tom Petty, Katy Perry, George Straight, Lady Gaga, Bon Jovi, Carrie Underwood, Foo Fighters and hundreds more.
Well, we’re celebrating our 50th Summerfest in 2017 and the 50th isn’t only a celebration of our history as one of the longest running music festivals in the world. It’s about what this festival continues to offer to our community of beloved fans decade after decade. Maybe you saw your first concert here.
