Summerfest, the "World's Largest Music Festival," runs June 27-July 1 & July 3-8 this year and it will be awesome as usual! Over 700 artists and bands, 12 stages (yes, there's a new one this year), a revamped North Gate and U.S. Cellular Connection Stage, some new security rules, and new foods including bacon cannoli (WOW!), Ninja Tacos, and more.
On my EricCast podcast, VP/Marketing of Milwaukee World Festivals, inc. and friend Sarah Smith Pancheri joins me for a nice conversation on Summerfest 2018, reflecting on past Summerfests, new things for this year, and other interesting tidbits as you prepare to enjoy.
For example, do you know how the first band to headline the Amphitheater (once the Marcus, now the American Family Insurance Amphitheater) was? Do you know how you can arrive to Summerfest via boat, even if you don't own one? Do you know where the new main stage will be?
Keep listening to the station to find out how you can win 4-packs of Summerfest General Admission Passes, too!
