In a tweet, Milwaukee World Festival Inc. President/CEO Don Smiley said, "We couldn't be more excited to unveil the lineup for Summerfest." “Our lineup continues to be one of the most diverse and special in the industry, with first-timers like Chance the Rapper, Miley Cyrus, and Run the Jewels joining Fest classics like Dave Matthews Band, T-Pain, Styx, and Chris Stapleton.”


Summerfest has historically run from late June to early July over an 11-day period, but organizers have moved it back to the fall this year as the nation continues to carry out the COVID-19 vaccine and attempts to achieve herd immunity.
