2016 Emerging Artists Series

The Emerging Artists Series presented by Full Compass and 88Nine Radio Milwaukee will take place every day of the festival on the Johnson Controls World Sound Stage with Blue Moon and 88Nine. For a decade, this series has highlighted up-and-coming local and national talent during daily performances that not only showcase great live music, but also engage the audience by allowing patrons to vote for their 11 favorites. Some artists in past series have gone on to become nationally known, including The Mowgli’s, Walk the Moon, Nathaniel Rateliff and X Ambassadors.
