Milwaukee-based Summerfest operator Milwaukee World Festival Inc. has gradually been announcing its American Family Insurance Amphitheater headliners. They are: Red Hot Chili Peppers with Deerhoof and Jack Irons; Luke Bryan with Brothers Osborne; Zac Brown Band; P!nk; The Chainsmokers; Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers with Chris Stapleton; Dierks Bentley with Cole Swindell and Jon Pardi; Future, Big Sean & Migos; and the Outlaw Music Festival with Willie Nelson & Family, Bob Dylan and His Band, Sheryl Crow and more.

The grounds stage headliner announcement for Summerfest’s 50th year was shared with a national audience this year, when Jimmy Kimmel plugged it on his ABC show Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tuesday night. And Summerfest will stream some of the live performances free to a global audience with the help of Jimmy Kimmel Live!

“Music is in the DNA of Jimmy Kimmel Live and the show has a passion for bringing great, one of a kind content to our fans,” said co-executive producer Doug Deluca. “Jumping in with Summerfest to launch such a big initiative made complete sense, they are the country’s largest music festival.”

Summerfest 2017 will be held at Henry Maier Festival Park in Milwaukee from June 28 to July 2 and July 4 to July 9.
