The 2015 Summerfest lineup has finally been revealed, with over 90 acts announced earlier today (March 24). And while some of our favorite acts are set to play, we might be most excited to see Ed Sheeran who, according to Summerfest‘s official site, is set to headline with special guest performers Rixton.
Summerfest claims to be the world’s largest music festival and takes place at the Henry Maier Festival Park in Milwaukee from June 24 to 28 and June 30 to July 5. Considering the festival spans the course of 11 days and boasts 90-plus performers, we’re pretty confident someone you enjoy listening to is playing at some point. Other headliners that will be playing the Marcus Amphitheater include Kings of Leon, Kendrick Lamar, Zac Brown Band, Florida Georgia Line, Keith Urban and Linkin Park.
Acts that will be headlining the Ground Stage include Kaskade, the Flaming Lips, Bastille, Sheryl Crow, Santigold, Aloe Blacc, Magic!, Brand New, Vance Joy, Matt Kearny and a ton of others.
Don Smiley, the president and CEO of Summerfest, referred to the lineup in a statement, calling it (quote via Billboard), “Absolutely fantastic.” He then went on to say, “It’s the best line-up of bands in the U.S. and possibly the world. A true, quality choice of music for everyone.” He isn’t wrong about the diversity of the lineup — it covers a ton of different ground as far as artists and genres are concerned, which should make for a seriously interesting festival.
According to Billboard, the festival is estimating 900,000 attendees this year, and, in case you were wondering, there will apparently be 20 variations of chicken sold at the festival.
