Summerfest announced its grounds stage headliners last week, and yesterday revealed the acts that will play at the Miller Lite Oasis. Today, it continued its highly anticipated, stage-by-stage unveiling, giving us the BMO Harris Pavilion with Miller Lite lineup for the festival's 50th celebration.

A state-of-the-art facility located near the south end of the grounds, the BMO Harris Pavilion has large video screens along a contoured seating bowl and a lakeside bar – as well as restrooms – located conveniently nearby. The Pavilion has featured artists from across all genres, including classic rock, country, hip hop and alternative, and in the past has hosted such big names as Willie Nelson, Sheryl Crow, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and others.

Included in the "BMO Effect" for its bank customers is a dedicated entrance south of the box office that offers easily accessible and exclusive entry to the festival, free ATM transactions on the grounds through the entire Summerfest festival season and a discount on merchandise at the Summerfest store when using a BMO Harris Bank debit or credit card.

Once again, for all headlining performances at the BMO Harris Pavilion with Miller Lite, Summerfest will offer fans the option of free general admission seats or reserved seats available for purchase. Similar to other Summerfest stages, the majority of seating in the BMO Harris Pavilion is free to the public on a first-come, first-served basis. But a select number of reserved tickets will be available for each headlining concert for $25, plus fees, and they include admission to the festival.

Now through April 25 at 11:59 p.m., fans can buy a 3-Day Pass for $45 ($60 value) or an 11-Day Pass for $80 ($220 value).

Get excited for the great headliners at the BMO Harris Pavilion in advance by listening to the playlist on Spotify.

Born in Milwaukee but a product of Shorewood High School (go ‘Hounds!) and Northwestern University (go ‘Cats!), Jimmy never knew the schoolboy bliss of cheering for a winning football, basketball or baseball team. So he ditched being a fan in order to cover sports professionally - occasionally objectively, always passionately. He's lived in Chicago, New York and Dallas, but now resides again in his beloved Brew City and is an ardent attacker of the notorious Milwaukee Inferiority Complex.

After interning at print publications like Birds and Blooms (official motto: "America's #1 backyard birding and gardening magazine!"), Sports Illustrated (unofficial motto: "Subscribe and save up to 90% off the cover price!") and The Dallas Morning News (a newspaper!), Jimmy worked for web outlets like, where he was a Packers beat reporter, and FOX Sports Wisconsin, where he managed digital content. He's a proponent and frequent user of em dashes, parenthetical asides, descriptive appositives and, really, anything that makes his sentences longer and more needlessly complex.

Jimmy appreciates references to late '90s Brewers and Bucks players and is the curator of the unofficial John Jaha Hall of Fame. He also enjoys running, biking and soccer, but isn't too annoying about them. He writes about sports - both mainstream and unconventional - and non-sports, including history, music, food, art and even golf (just kidding!), and welcomes reader suggestions for off-the-beaten-path story ideas.
