Summerfest Unveils Impressive Lineup

Summerfest 2014

As a Milwaukee native, I’ll be the first to admit that, in recent years, Summerfest has left a lot to be desired. Waves of nefarious activity, coupled with expanding crowds and consistently lackluster lineups have made the annual, 11-day event sort of a running joke amongst my circle of friends—a place for teens to blackout on grain alcohol and garner new profile pics. However, it seems like this will not be the case this coming summer, as earlier today, “The Big Gig” announced an absolutely killer roster, including Fall Out Boy, Paramore, Brand New, Rise Against, Atmosphere, The Hold Steady, and many more. Check out the full list at the bottom of this post, following the jump.

The fun begins on June 25 and will go through July 6; snag your tickets here. Don’t forget to comment below and let UTG know if you’ll be attending!
