Festival Essentials & Insider Tips

It’s an overwhelming season for the world’s largest music festival, but here are all the important details you need to know. 

First, grab a ticket if you haven’t yet. There’s a General Admission ($28), a UScellular 3-day Pass ($62), a Level Up Deck pass ($100), and a UScellular 9-day Power Pass ($130). There’s a separate ticket for the American Insurance Amphitheatre—a 1-day Pass ($28) and a 3-day Pass—any 3 days of the event ($62)—and BMO Pavilion (reserved seats for $88.76/performance), which you can get at Ticketmaster.

They also offer weekend ticket and hotel packages (Weekend 1 – $162+, Weekend 2 – $178+, and Weekend 3 – $143), which are on sale now!

Inside the venue, aside from the eight (8) performance stages, you can also catch artists and bands playing in different areas. Summerville on the north end features an intimate spot, highlighting Wisconsin-based artists and bands, but American Family Insurance House inside the Mid Gate is the most intimate venue of all, with exclusive shows from festival headliners. The South Party Pavilion, on the other hand, is the top local entertainment, where you can party and dance your heart out. 

Beyond the music, they also have a community park and sportzone for families! And they’ve got more in-store for every festival goer, like culinary adventure, friendly competitions, special events, brand activations, and of course, shopping. But it’s a cashless festival, so make sure you’re ready. Even if you’re not, they are. They have cash-to-reusable card conversions located outside and inside the grounds. 

Milwaukee World Festival Inc., which owns the Summerfest, is more than happy to assist everyone.
