Summerfest side stage headliners

Summerfest has some entertainer updates today. But they're vague.

Milwaukee World Festivals has issued a list of a dozen acts that will headline side stages at the 45th annual summer festival at the Henry Maier Festival Park, but there's no info on specific dates, times or stages. Those, say Summerfest officials, will come later, in April.

Here are the first of the Summerfest 2012 side stage headliners to emerge:

  • Steve Miller Band
  • Common
  • Scorpions
  • Gary Clark Jr.
  • Robyn
  • Phil Vassar
  • Tito Rojas
  • Atmosphere
  • Halestorm
  • Fitz & the Tantrums
  • La India

According to, a concert website, the Steve Miller Band performance is on June 27. The site also lists Chevelle at the Big Gig on June 30 and Civil Twilight on July 1. Meanwhile, Scorpions itineraries online show the band here on June 30.

These details, of course, have not yet been confirmed by Summerfest, so stay tuned.

Summerfest 2012 is slated for June 27-July 1 and July 3-8, from noon until midnight. The festival will be closed Monday, July 2.
