The COVID pandemic cancelled the 'world's largest music festival' last year. But it's back in 2021, and here's who is coming to play.

For millions, the thing most missed during the COVID pandemic... live IN-PERSON concerts. Today's announcement of artists set to play the newly rescheduled Summerfest is about the best news I've gotten, since getting my civid vaccine appointments.

This year's Summerest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin has been rescheduled for three different weekends (Thursday-Saturday) in September.

  • September 2 - 4
  • September 9 - 11
  • September 16 - 18

First, lets cover the big shows that will happen inside the American Family Insurance Amphitheater:

  • September 8 - Jonas Brothers & Spencer Sutherland
  • September 9 - Chris Stapleton & Sheryl Crow
