If there’s one thing Milwaukeeans love more than the outdoors in summer, it’s the outdoors surrounded by live music and lake breezes with a cold beer in hand. Yes, Summerfest. Whether you wait all year to munch on Saz’s Sour Cream and Chive Fries on the Skyglider, or are dying to try the new BelAir Cantina and chill by the lake, The Big Gig will have all of your classic favorites, along with new treats. And of course, all that music: Summerfest promises the best lineup in its 51 year history.

To help you really enjoy the upcoming festival, Urban Milwaukee is offering a special membership deal until our tickets run out. If you sign up to become an annual member, you’ll receive two Summeriest tickets on us, valued at $21 each. This is just a kick-off to all of the perks you’ll receive for becoming a member. For an entire year, you’ll help support Urban Milwaukee’s journalism, and you’ll be eligible to get free tickets to a number of Milwaukee events.

We know there are thousands and thousands of regular Urban Milwaukee readers, who appreciate our fiercely independent coverage of the city, and have probably thought about becoming a member. Maybe you just didn’t get around to it, or were waiting for the best deal. Well, if you love Summerfest, this is the perfect offer. By becoming an annual member, you’ll help us continue to grow our publication, which now publishes more than 40 stories and 100 press releases per week.

So join us today.

  • Invitations to member-only events and online chats with a chance to meet and converse with Urban Milwaukee staff, including our Beer Bashes that explore new Milwaukee breweries
  • Free tickets to concerts, festivals and other events as they become available through our partners
  • Behind-the-scenes tours of new, under-construction and classic Milwaukee buildings

The price of all that is our annual membership fee of $99, and during this limited-time deal, you’ll receive free admission to Summerfest for you and one guest. The tickets are valued at almost half of the price of becoming a member for the entire year. And signing up is easy.
