Wise Fest

Next Saturday, September 14th, Wise Fest returns to Walworth County Fairgrounds for a day of incredible live music, food, and fun. The festival will feature 17 bands from Wisconsin and Illinois, all performing their original works. The festival was created last year by husband and wife duo Melissa and Jeff Weishaar of the band Wise Jennings, who are paying the costs of the festival with their own money; including sound production, administrative costs and most importantly to them: paying the bands. The Weishaars will donate any proceeds above their costs to the Walworth County Fairgrounds.

Wise Fest’s lineup includes such bands as Armchair Boogie, Cullah & The Comrades, Mike Stone Trio, The Thriftones, Wise Jennings, and many more. And not only will there be great music, but plenty of art to see, too. So attendees will be able to enjoy the inspiring beauty displayed around the venue. Camping tickets, as well as general admission single day tickets are available for this event. Urban Milwaukee has a handful of single day tickets for those looking for a day of music and art that we’d like to share with our members – for free.

It’s just another perk in Urban Milwaukee’s membership program, unlike that of any news publication in town. Being a member is like being a Milwaukee insider; you’re the first to get deals on tickets and invitations to cool, members-only events. And if you sign-up today, you’ll receive two free single-day admission tickets to Wise Fest on Saturday, September 14th from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., while supplies last. Once you become a member, you can follow this link to reserve your two tickets.
