Last month, Summerfest 50 – with the help of "Jimmy Kimmel Live" – dropped almost its entire list of grounds stage headliners. The key word there is "almost," because while it was a massive flood of famous names, there were still a few holes and TBAs left to be filled out.
Good news (unless you're a Brett Eldredge fan): Today, those vacancies are no more, as Summerfest announced the rest of its grounds stage headliners, including Ludacris, Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, The Spinners and Lee Brice – replacing fellow country star Brett Eldredge, who had to bow out of the Big Gig due to a scheduling conflict.
Here is a complete list of the new headliners and nationally recognized supporting acts added this morning:
- Hook N Sting: 7:30 p.m. at the Miller Lite Oasis

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.
