Summerfest Will Rock!

The latest act to be added to the Summerfest lineup is Daughtry! I would love to go, but it is two nights before my triathlon. I have to pick up my race materials early the next morning and will probably have other things I should be doing.

For those who don't know, Summerfest is the world's largest music festival. It is held on Milwaukee's lake front each summer for 11 days. In addition to the Marcus Amphitheater, there are at least nine other stages. All those stages are free with your admission to the festival grounds. It's a music lover's dream! Lots of music and fun!

Here is the amphitheater lineup for Summerfest

06/28: Steely Dan
06/29: Def Leppard w/ Styx & Foreigner
06/30: The Fray w/ OK Go & Mae
07/01: Ludacris w/ Chris Brown, Ciara & T-Pain
07/02: Roger Waters
07/03: John Mayer with Ben Folds & Brett Dennen
07/04: Tool
07/05: Bon Jovi
07/06: Daughtry
07/07: Panic! At the Disco w/ Gym Class Heroes, The Academy Is, & The Hush Sound
07/08: Toby Keith

Any of your favorites on that list?

Most of those I would want to see play on one of the free stages. I am not sure how many times we will get down there this year. I REALLY want to see the Silversun Pickups; Shiny Toy Guns on June 29 & Plain White T's on July 4.

My husband would have a field day! My tastes are more the 7/3 day with John Mayer.

The town near where I stayed in Denmark also has a large music festival, I didn't realize that we had them here in the states. It sounds like it would be a blast. Is there a campground near by where people can stay?

This takes place on festival grounds right on the lake front in "downtown" Milwaukee. There isn't a campground within walking distance that I know of, but there are some that are within a reasonable driving distance.

It is a blast you can walk from stage to stage and hear great music all day long. I love it!

What a line up.
John Mayer would be top for me.

And Daughtry is just more proof that you don't have to actually WIN Americal Idol.

Man, what a line-up!

As a child of the 80s, that hits some of the big groups for me.

And, hey...Roger Waters? Now, that would interesting.
