MILWAUKEE (June 6, 2017) – Summerfest presented by American Family Insurance welcomes back the Emerging Artists Series at the Johnson Controls World Sound Stage with 88Nine Radio Milwaukee.  Some artists in past series have gone on to become nationally and internationally known, including Walk The Moon, Nathaniel Rateliff, Maren Morris, X Ambassadors, The Record Company and many others.

Over the years, this popular series has highlighted up-and-coming local, national and international talent that not only showcases great live music, but also engages the audience by having fans vote each day via text for their favorite performance.  The band with the most fan votes each day will receive an “Emerging Artist Series Care Package” that includes nearly $3,000 in gear and merchandise from major manufacturers like Sennheiser, Hal Leonard Corporation, Sakae, Line 6, Zildjian, Best-Tronics and others, as well as valuable services from Planetary Group, Indiehitmaker, and Merchcat.
