Now in its 52nd year, Summerfest is an 11-day live music extravaganza held in Milwaukee on the shores of Lake Michigan. Billed as ‘The World’s Largest Music Festival’ (a title certified by Guinness World Records), it’s a continually evolving event. The line-up tends to be a blend of big name artists and emerging talent – this year will see performances from The National, Jennifer Lopez and Bon Iver while the festival’s Emerging Artists Series will continue to shine the spotlight on up-and-coming talent. Each day of the series, a Twitter poll will decide which performance deserves an ‘Emerging Artist Series Care Package’, including thousands of dollars in equipment, merchandise and services.

The 2019 edition of the festival takes place from the 26th June to 8th July, with hundreds of acts and performances hosted in a summery setting, including fireworks and comedy shows from the likes of Andy Samberg and his comedy trio, The Lonely Island. In between sets, fuel up for more dancing with food from pop-ups specialising in cuisines ranging from Cali-infused Mexican fare to classics like grilled corn-on-the-cob dripping with butter.
