Summerfest presented by American Family Insurance is excited to announce a renewed partnership with national late night television show "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"
Building on the success of last year’s Summerfest stream, Jimmy Kimmel Live! Music will continue to provide exclusive access to festival performances to audiences worldwide, free of charge. This partnership is made possible with support from American Family Insurance.
Select performances on the American Family Insurance Amphitheater stage will be streamed. Performances will be distributed on participating artist websites, jimmkimmelivemusic.com, Summerfest.com and other websites to be announced.
As part of this year’s program, American Family Insurance will host artist meet and greets on-site at the festival. Each of the 11 days of the festival, select artists will appear to sign autographs for fans and take photos at the American Family Insurance House, located inside the festival’s mid-gate. Access will be limited; information on how to gain access to these daily artist meet and greets is available Summerfest.com.
"It was great to be able to deliver the largest music festival in the country to a wider audience on-line last year," said Doug DeLuca – Co-Executive producer of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!", "we are thrilled to back again this year to share some of Summerfest’s great line-up with a national audience."
"We are thrilled to continue our partnership with 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' to bring the Summerfest experience online to a worldwide audience," said Don Smiley, President & CEO of Summerfest. "The featured artists within the stream will represent a variety of genres; diversity of our line-up is a hallmark of the festival and one of the reasons Summerfest has endured over five decades."
