Summerfest announces more than 100 headliners for 2022 festival
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Summer is just around the corner and that means warmer days, longer nights and lots of music for Milwaukeeans.
Summerfest officials announced more than 100 headliners for the upcoming 3-weekend festival.
"A lot of bands wanted to work this summer, as you can tell. Across the board we have a ton of shows in the Amphitheater and the BMO Pavilion all summer long," Bob Babisch, vice president of entertainment for Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. said.
Tickets are on sale now, including limited time Power passes and three-day passes.
Plus, Summerfest's afternoon shows are returning.
This will also be Babisch's last Summerfest.
He said it's exciting, but sad that's it's all coming to an end.
"Forty-six years is a long time to do it but there's a lot of great people behind me that are going to continue this. We're just stewards of this festival. When we leave there's somebody else to take our place," Babisch said.
