Summerfest & Visit Milwaukee 2015 Giveaway

Friday, June 05, 2015 HALFSTACK MAGAZINE

Halfstack will be going to Visit Milwaukee this month! We will be heading up to Wisconsin at the end of this month and will be documenting our adventures at Summerfest as well as some exciting must visit spots throughout Milwaukee. You will get a full recap and photo gallery on the blog, in the issue as well as some great video footage on youtube. So, be sure to check back.

To kick things off, though, we are starting with a giveaway! The Summerfest team was kind enough to send us out some tickets for all of you amazing readers! We will be giving away a pair of tickets for a lucky winner and a friend. This one is open to local residents only (no international entrants) as you have to be able to get yourself to and from Summerfest and transportation costs are not included in the giveaway.

Summerfest brings back memories of highschool and college for me - one of the first "road trips" I took from Chicago was the drive out to Milwaukee my senior year. I know summer is in full swing when they announce the lineups and I reminisce about the amazing food of years past! For those of you not in the know, Summerfest is an 11 day festival in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. For 11 days, more than 800 acts play across the 11 stages featured on the grounds. On any given day, attendees can enjoy alternative, rock, country, R&B, pop, reggae headliners and more.

While music is the focus of this event, it is not the only thing you will find. Over 45 food and beverage vendors deliver an array of foods and flavors to satisfy fest-goers. From donuts to spaghetti, grilled cheese to fajitas, ribs and anything fried, you can find it at Summerfest including ice cold Miller Light (the official beer of Summerfest). I would highly suggest the fried turkey legs. The fest takes place right on the shores of Lake Michigan at Henry Maier Festival Park. You can enjoy music, shopping, food and event interactive exhibits.

This years lineup includes some major players including The Rolling Stones, Buddy Holly, Florida Georgia Line, Kings of Leon, Bastille, Phillip Phillips, Linkin Park and so many more! You can see the full lineup here.

Summerfest also continues to showcase emerging artists this year. The U.S. Cellular Stage will feature breaking and up and coming bands via the Emerging Artists Series each day from 3:00 to 7:30 pm. Not only will fans be able to use their cell phones to vote for their favorite bands in the series, but U.S. Cellular® will again offer Pix-2-Screen™ and Text-2-Screen™, which allows patrons to send pictures and text messages to a large screen next to the stage. Each day of the festival, the band with the most texts associated with their name will win an "Emerging Artists Series Care Package". Chicago  based  bands Molehill and Bailiff will be making appearances! So, show your support!

Summerfest is the perfect kickoff to the summer and a great time to spend with friends and family. You can make memories, enjoy your favorite bands, meet new people and have the time of your life.
