Music in Milwaukee: Hot Tickets for Out-of-Towners

A Sponsored Message from VISIT Milwaukee


If you’re planning an event in Milwaukee this summer, this line-up of concerts and festivals will be music to your ears.

Music is a universal source of inspiration. Many professionals rely on music to get in the zone to deliver their best work—and even more turn to music and live concerts to celebrate a job well done. Keep your attendees inspired and engaged during your next event by hosting them in a city like Milwaukee, which is literally humming with concerts and festivals during the summer months.

Always-On Outdoor Concerts

What better way to relax after a long day of networking and meetings than a free outdoor concert? During the summer months, concerts take place almost every night of the week at parks, museums and amphitheaters around town. Attendees can choose from cover bands, classical ensembles or jazz groups—and an impressive roster of local food trucks that flock to each event.

The World’s Largest Music Festival

If your attendees have an appetite for even more music, consider planning your event around Summerfest, the city’s annual music festival that runs for almost two weeks between late June and early July. Its 12 stages featuring over 800 acts and 1,000+ performances have put this festival in The Guinness Book of World Records—but, for you, these stats just mean every one of your attendees will find something here that moves them.

Put Your Event Center Stage

If you’re looking for a way to infuse music directly into your event, consider booking an iconic performance venue like the Miller High Life Theatre or The Pabst Theater. The Miller High Life Theatre, built in 1909, features two sloped tiers of seats that ensure all attendees get an undisturbed view of the stage. And the impressive rotunda lobby is the perfect spot for receptions. The Pabst, built in 1895 and designed in the style of a European opera house, is packed with one-of-a-kind details, including a proscenium arch (highlighted in gold leaf) that frames the stage. The Fiserv Forum (home to the Milwaukee Bucks and part of the 30-acre entertainment hub known as the Deer District) also accommodates private events. Choose from the arena floor (great for trade shows or high-traffic receptions) or the Panorama Club, which sits at the top level of the arena and boasts an outdoor patio and panoramic views of downtown.
