Changeover Day at Summerfest gives employees chance to prepare for upcoming week
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – There was no music at the world’s largest music festival on July 2. Since 2011, the Big Gig has taken Mondays off.
“Changeover Day” is designed to give employees a break and prep for the upcoming week.
Workers at Summerfest Grounds were helping sponsors set up booths. Vendors were also busy cleaning and getting stuff ready for another busy week ahead.
Summerfest says Mondays are typically a slow day in the entertainment industry.
“Traffic was really light for us and people are recovering from the weekend, spending a lot of money coming down here. We hope and it had an added benefit to give our vendors, sponsors, crews a little bit of rest,” said Summerfest Executive Producer Gaye Littell.
Summerfest picks up again on Tuesday with J. Cole and Trippie Redd headlining the American Family Insurance Amphitheater at 7:30 p.m.
Other headliners include Foster the People, Louis the Child, Trace Adkins, and Steven Tyler on the ground stages.
Bishop Briggs is the headliner at 10 p.m. at the Briggs and Stratton Big Backyard stage co-sponsored by CBS 58. Also performing Tuesday are Joy Wave, Under the Streetlamp, L.I.F.T., the Keith Pulvermacher Band, UWM Youth Jazz Ensemble and the Milwaukee Jazz Orchestra.
