It’s taking a break today, but Milwaukee’sSummerfest 2015, the World’s Largest Music Festival, has gotten off to a great start. Unlike many other premiere music festivals, Summerfest (which runs until July 5th) brings an especially diverse list of performers to Milwaukee’s lakefront every year, creating for a festival where you can see Kanye West (who performed in 2011) share the same stage as Peter Gabriel and Kid Rock. So to get things started for The Early Registration’s first year at Summerfest, we had to catch a wide variety of acts all festival long.
Check out our Summerfest Day 5 photos below, of Andy Grammer (interview coming soon), Ryn Weaver, The New Pornographers and Summerfest’s most controversial booking, DJ Paris Hilton.
