Halsey, Justin Bieber, Machine Gun Kelly, Lil Wayne, The Backstreet Boys, Charli XCX, and Willow are just a smattering of the over 100 artists that will be performing at Milwaukee’s gargantuan annual summer festival, Summerfest, this year.
While the event will take place over its usual three weekends in June and July and see a host of acts grace its 11 festival stages, Summerfest is also debuting a separate, smaller set of performances at the American Family Insurance Amphitheater for its 2022 edition. There, Halsey, Justin Bieber, Machine Gun Kelly, Lil Wayne, The Backstreet Boys, and more will play separate ticketed shows alongside special guests. Lil Wayne will be joined by Wiz Khalifa and the Wu-Tang Clan; Halsey will bring on cult band The Marías and Abby Roberts. And Justin Bieber will tote along Jaden, Harry Hudson and Colombian singer ¿Téo?.
But even if you can’t make those shows, you can still enjoy the full spectrum of performances lined up for Summerfest’s general music festival which will have everyone from Charli XCX to fast-riser GAYLE, and Death Cab For Cutie perform. And the best part is how wallet-friendly it’ll all be with 3-day passes starting at only $50.
