Day 4 of Summerfest was a scorcher, but the performances proved to be even hotter!
The first Saturday of The Big Gig's 2018 campaign delivered country swagger thank to headliners Florida Georgia Line at the American Family Insurance Amphitheater. The night's MVP award goes to Rachel Platten, however, who pulled double duty by headlining the BMO Harris Pavilion with Miller Lite AND subbing in for Amphitheater special guest Bebe Rexha, who canceled due to illness! Over on the north end of the grounds at the Uline Warehouse with Miller Lite, CW18 & My24 welcomed its own stellar country lineup to the stage! An enthusiastic crowd braved the heat to welcome Smithfield, Dylan Schneider, and the legendary singer/songwriter Phil Vassar to Milwaukee's Lakefront. Both Dylan Scheider and Phill Vassar were kind enough to make time to sit down with CW18's Carole Caine for a chat and met with excited FM106.1 fans during their appearances. Keep an eye out for the interviews soon!
Join CW18 & My24 and Miller Lite for another great year of acts taking the stage at the Uline Warehouse on the north end of the Summerfest grounds, and check back for exclusive photos and video from the Big Gig!
