In addition to boasting itself as the World’s Largest Music Festival, Milwaukee’s Summerfest consistently has one of the most diverse lineups in music today.
That diversity was on display today as the lakeside festival kicked off its 2018 schedule with a great selection of artists across all different genres. This was evident with our day one itinerary, as we caught performances from rapper Lil Uzi Vert, EDM star Alesso, country music’s Walker Hayes and more!
Check out our photos of day one of Summerfest 2018 below.
One of our favorite things about Lollapalooza is its aftershows. The aftershows not only allow fans who weren’t able to score wristbands to the actual festival to also see some great sets, but it showcases the beautiful intimate local venues (Aragon, The Mid, The Riviera and more) of our nation’s Second City, Chicago. This year’s Lollapalooza Aftershows are just as great as ever, with a number of performances that we recommend catching. Performing official Lollapalooza Aftershows this year are Alesso, Tove Lo, Gary Clark Jr., The War on Drugs, Glass Animals, alt-J, SZA, Mick Jenkins, Marina and the Diamonds, Logic and many more!
Grammy nominated producer/DJ Alesso has premiered his latest track ‘Cool’ on Pete Tong’s BBC Radio 1 show yesterday. The song, which features Roy English, is the follow up to Alesso’s worldwide hit song ‘Heroes’. Look out for Alesso’s upcoming debut album out later this year via Def Jam Recordings / Virgin EMI. ‘Cool’ will be available for purchase on February 17th in the U.S, but you can listen to the new dance track below.
