Dave Matthews Band will headline the American Family Insurance Amphitheater on July 2 during Summerfest.

The popular rock group last appeared at the Big Gig in 2018.

In 2019, the band performed back-to-back shows at Alpine Valley Music Theatre, a venue it has played regularly over the years.

Five shows at the American Family Insurance Amphitheater have been announced so far for Summerfest 2020:

  • Justin Bieber on June 24
  • Luke Bryan on June 25
  • Ozzy Osbourne and special guest Marilyn Manson on July 1
  • Dave Matthews Band on July 2
  • Halsey on July 5

The festival runs June 24-28 and June 30-July 5.

Five big-name performers have also been booked at the amphitheater for concerts in 2020 unrelated to Summerfest, including Hall & Oates on July 26, The Black Crowes on Aug. 22, Nickelback on Aug. 27, Maroon 5 on Aug. 30 and KISS on Sept. 15.

The amphitheater has undergone a two-phase, $53 million redevelopment in recent years. The project included raising the facility’s roof 26 feet, building new restrooms, enhancing accessibility and adding new food and beverage options.
