Summerfest moved to September 2021 to give more time for vaccine rollout
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- For the second year in a row, COVID-19 has America's largest music festival on the move. Originally set for a trio of three-day weekends in June and July, Summerfest 2021 will now be held on the first three weekends in September.
Summerfest 2021 will be held September 2-4, 9-11 and 16-18. Festival organizers said this is in effort to give health officials more time to vaccinate the general public.
We are excited to get the live music industry back in action and to welcome fans back, but in order to allow healthcare professionals more time to distribute the vaccine, Summerfest 2021 will be held September 2-4, 9-11 & 16-18. Save those dates, and we'll see you in September! pic.twitter.com/pg0Dh93Aj0— Summerfest (@Summerfest) February 2, 2021
