Summerfest reschedules headliners for Big Gig 2021
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- With 2020 Summerfest canceled, headliners have rescheduled for next year's Big Gig.
They include the Dave Matthews Band, Blink-182, Luke Bryan, Khalid, and Halsey.
The 11-day music festival was canceled because of coronavirus and uncertainty surrounding large gatherings.
However, organizers are focused on next year. They’re finishing up renovations at the AmFam Amphitheater.
They say fans should be doubly excited for next year’s festival.
“We sure pack a lot into six or seven months, so people have just grown to love Summerfest over 53 years, generations of fans, so of course they’re going to miss it,” said Don Smiley,” president and CEO of Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. “We’re going to miss them this year, and we’re just going to work hard and diligently to put on the best show that we can in 21.”
Here's a look at the schedule for the American Family Insurance Amphitheater.
Ticket holders are asked to hold onto their original tickets, and those will be honored for the 2021 date.
Refunds will be offered if you're not able to attend.
The dates for Summerfest 2021 will be announced later this year.
