Summerfest continues its one-man mission to make summer seem like it's actually going to happen at some point, following up yesterday's BMO Harris Pavilion headliners by announcing the lineup of featured acts hitting the U.S. Cellular Connection Stage this June and July (when hopefully the snow's melted). 

Here's who you'll be hearing there this summer:

Of course, the most exciting news coming from the U.S. Cellular Connection Stage this year is the venue itself, which has been totally revamped – complete with a new stage, the largest video board at the festival, several charging stations, a specialty viewing area located up front by the pit and a Backstage Loft VIP hospitality section. 

So get excited for that new stage, for these musical acts and for all the white on the ground to be replaced with green in just a little over two months (probably). And stay tuned to OnMilwaukee for more stage-by-stage Summerfest announcements and other Big Gig news.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
