Just so certain of our members notice the July 1 act, it's STYX. There are numerous stages with famous performers and those who will someday be famous (like the BoDeans).
There are plenty of good reasons to visit Milwaukee in the summer (gorgeous public-access lakefront, great food prepared by James Beard winners, museums, clubs...). Summerfest is one of the top draws, with people coming from Chicago to Canberra and everywhere in between. You never know who'll show up in the crowd!
