If there’s one thing Milwaukeeans love during the summer, it’s being outdoors, enjoying some cool lake breeze. And if they can enjoy it with a cold beer and some great music, all the better. Good thing Summerfest starts next week.

The Big Gig will have all your classic favorites, plus some new stops and treats. So if you’ve been waiting all year to munch on Saz’s Sour Cream and Chive Fries, you won’t be disappointed. If you want to try something new, you can check out the Party Patio with Punch Bowl Social. And of course, all that music: Summerfest has a diverse lineup of over 100 headline artists, offering (at least) one performance to suit every taste.

To help you really enjoy the upcoming festival, Urban Milwaukee is offering a special membership deal. The first 10 readers to sign-up to become a member with special discount code BIGGIG will receive two Summerfest tickets on us, valued at $23 each, until we run out. This is just a kick-off to all of the perks you’ll receive for becoming a member. You’ll also support Urban Milwaukee’s journalism and be eligible to get free tickets to a number of Milwaukee events.

New members, either monthly or annual, need to use discount code BIGGIG to access their two free tickets when signing up. You will be emailed shortly after joining our program. After we receive 10 new sign-ups, either monthly or annually, the discount code will expire.

We know there are many regular Urban Milwaukee readers who appreciate our unique style of covering the city and have probably thought about becoming a member. If that’s sounds like you, and you love Summerfest, then what are you waiting for? There’s something for everyone at Summerfest, and we’d love to help you enjoy the festival for free.

So, join us today.
