Forty-three years in, Milwaukee Summerfest is the summertime event for Midwesterners, annually drawing about 900,000. Produced by nonprofit Milwaukee World Festival, it has also become a regular stop for summer’s biggest touring acts. Beer per caps are enormous, but Summerfest caters to families as well.
Outlook: Usher, American Idols Live!, Carrie Underwood, Eric Clapton/Roger Daltrey and others at Marcus, plus ground stages that host hot acts from virtually every genre, will take Summerfest to its usual heights.
