Over 100 Headlining Artists Announced

MILWAUKEE, WI (April 9, 2019) – Summerfest presented by American Family Insurance is excited to announce the 2019 headliner lineup.  The 52nd edition of the festival, Summerfest 2019 will remain true its roots, offering something for every music fan from pop to hip-hop, country to EDM, and alternative to classic rock.

We are committed to remaining a top destination for music fans worldwide, as well as a driver of $186 million dollars of economic impact for the region,” he added.
