Last month, Summerfest announced its new American Family Insurance name sponsorship and the Madison-based company’s plans to sponsor a new amphitheater on its grounds in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward, with construction slated to begin in 2019. The festival also plans to build a new U.S. Cellular-sponsored stage at the north end of the Henry Maier Festival Park by 2018.
