Harley-Davidson Inc. has announced that John Fogerty and Uncle Kracker have been added to the entertainment lineup for the company’s 110th anniversary celebration to be held over Labor Day weekend.

The company expects more than 100,000 motorcycles and 60-plus bands to be at the Summerfest grounds.

“When we have fun, we go full throttle,” said Harley-Davidson chief marketing officer Mark-Hans Richer. “We know there are other music festivals and motorcycle rallies, but our 110th in Milwaukee will be an epic bash. You won’t want to miss it. It only happens once every five years.”

The company also announced the creation of a two-day ticket option for $79, plus “convenience fees.” The ticket is good for any two days of the three-day party, Aug. 29 – 31. Harley-Davidson will not offer one-day tickets.

Three-day tickets, available for $95 plus “convenience fees,” and two-day tickets each provide access to the Summerfest grounds.

Country superstar Toby Keith (Aug. 29), Rock ‘n Roll Hall-of-Famers Aerosmith (Aug. 30) and Kid Rock (Aug. 31) will each take the stage at the Marcus Amphitheater.

Country music singer-songwriter Kip Moore will open for Keith.

Rocker Uncle Kracker will open for Kid Rock, while Fogerty will sit in with Kid Rock for a set on Aug. 31.

Fogerty, the former lead singer, guitarist and writer for Creedence Clearwater Revival, recently released “Wrote a Song for Everyone,” which debuted in the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart at #3 earlier this year.

On Thursday, Aug. 29 between noon and 5 p.m., Harley-Davidson will celebrate the 30th anniversary of H.O.G. (Harley Owners Group), the official riding club of Harley-Davidson. The event will feature exclusive early entry for H.O.G. members, live entertainment including Lynyrd Skynyrd and nine other brands, a H.O.G. precision riding competition, a New Orleans-style walking parade and a members-only Muscular Dystrophy Association bike raffle. In addition, there will be the largest-ever H.O.G. member family photo, a “Dream Ride Contest” and a H.O.G. 30th anniversary time capsule, which will be sealed on Labor Day and reopened in 2043.
