How Summerfest Impacts Other Local Music Venues

It won't be long before summer's here at the music fills the air. Not just as Summerfest but at so many places across our area, like county fairs.  In fact, Executive Director of the Waukesha County Fair, Shari Black, says she can't wait for her big annual event happening the third week of July.

The music is such a big part of it with this year's lineup, including country sensation Rodney Atkins, REO Speedwagon, and Three Dog Night.

She says it takes a lot to book these acts and tells me while Summerfest is in a class of its own, it still does has an impact on who performs on her stage. Black tells me sometimes she tries to get some of  Summerfest's side stage acts to perform at her venue.

It's interesting to note Summerfest usually puts a 100 mile radius restriction on its acts not to mention a 60 day performance ban. Meantime, Summerfest and so many other festivals have online early bird specials happening now. So log onto the appropriate website to see the discounted deals.
