Summerfest announced on Monday that it will move the dates for this year’s festival due to the coronavirus pandemic. Summerfest was previously scheduled for June 24 through July 5, but will now take place across several weekends, moving to Sept. 3-5, 10-12 and 17-19.
“We know there will be many questions and we look forward to sharing details with you in the future,” said Don Smiley, president and CEO of Milwaukee World Festival Inc., in a statement. “All purchases of festival tickets will be honored for the rescheduled September dates. More information about rescheduled performances at the American Family Insurance Amphitheater and BMO Harris Pavilion will follow soon. Please check Summerfest.com frequently for updates.”
Summerfest dubs itself as “The World’s Largest Music Festival” and attracts approximately 800,000 people each summer.
