After canceling in 2020 for the first time in its 53-year history, organizers of Milwaukee, WI’s Summerfest announced the star-studded lineup of acts slated to perform this year. The 53rd edition of the festival will take place over three consecutive weekends, September 2nd–4th, 9th–11th, and 16th–18th, with music running from noon to midnight each day. Summerfest features over 1,000 performances on 11 stages, along with food, beverages, and activities.

Summerfest will feature headline sets in the 23,000-capacity American Family Insurance Amphitheater from artists including Chris Stapleton, Jake Owen, Luke Bryan, Brett Eldredge, Chance the Rapper, Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers, and Dave Matthews Band, as well as performances from Sheryl Crow, the Zac Brown Band, and Gabby Barrett.
Summerfest has traditionally run from late June to early July over 11 days, but this year organizers have pushed it back to the fall as the nationwide COVID-19 vaccine roll-out continues and the nation attempts to reach herd immunity. The festival said it is committed to providing a safe environment for its fans, vendors, sponsors, and staff, and festival officials are working closely with local civic officials and health professionals to implement health and safety procedures and protocols.
