Milwaukee, WI –  Australian pop sensation Betty Who returns to PrideFest Milwaukee as our opening night headliner on Friday, June 9.

Topping the charts with her breakout hit, “Somebody Loves You,” Betty Who released her first album, Take Me When You Go, in October 2014. Last year, she returned to the charts with a cover of “I Love You Always Forever” that went to #1 on the Billboard US Dance charts. Her second studio album, The Valley, is scheduled for a March 2017 release.

On June 6, 2015, Betty Who performed at PrideFest Milwaukee to record-breaking Saturday night crowds. She will be the first headliner of the summer festival season to perform on Summerfest‘s newly redesigned Miller Lite Mainstage.

PrideFest Milwaukee 2017 will be held June 9, 10 and 11 at Henry W. Maier Festival Park. Additional headliners, special guests and entertainment schedules will be announced in March.

“This year, we’re celebrating our milestone 30th anniversary as your hometown LGBTQ festival with a special ticket offer,” said Wes Shaver, president of Milwaukee Pride, Inc. “Our three-day weekend pass — which allows access to all shows, on all stages, all weekend, including headliners — is just $30.”
