We began the week with a Summerfest grounds stage headliner lineup. We woke up every day during the week with a new Summerfest grounds stage headliner lineup. And we end the week the exact same way, as the Big Gig unveiled its schedule of headliner acts coming to the Uline Warehouse this summer.
It won't be the Uline Warehouse that you're used to down on the Summerfest grounds, however. The stage is receiving a facelift for the 2019 Big Gig, complete with a reimagined stage and seating area, a larger footprint, expanded sound and lighting capabilities, and a new video screen and bar area.
But, of course, people come for the performers on the stage, not merely the stage itself – so here's the lineup of headliners coming to the Uline Warehouse this summer:
10 p.m. – Walk the Moon
4 p.m. – Andrew W.K.
9:45 p.m. – Neon Trees
10 p.m. – Collective Soul
10 p.m. – Jimmy Eat World
3 p.m. – Hotel California: A Salute to the Eagles
9:30 p.m. – Lake Street Dive
8 p.m. – COIN
10 p.m. – Young the Giant
10 p.m. – Loverboy
10 p.m. – Vic Mensa
3 p.m. – Chris Robinson Brotherhood
8 p.m. – MAX
10 p.m. – Daya
10 p.m. – Chris Lane
9:45 p.m. – Rodrigo y Gabriela
As for more Big Gig announcements, stay tuned to OnMilwaukee. (We got to be running out of grounds stages soon, right?)
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.
