For the past 11 days, Milwaukee was awash with awesome soundwaves – and less awesome waves of rain, for those who are still drying off from day one – as the World's Largest Music Festival celebrated its fiftieth birthday. 

There really is nothing quite like Big Gig, and for many people, the festival is the pinnacle of their entire summer, the ultimate in summer entertainment. And although the festivities have come and gone, and reality is starting to set in again, we wanted to give you a chance to relive those joyous Summerfest memories. So we put together a short video recap of some memorable moments – big and small – from this year's fest.

Although nothing can come close to the rush of seeing your favorite band preform live, hopefully this video can come close to it. And so, without further ado, here are just some of the best Summerfest 50 moments wrapped up in one video for you to enjoy. 

And start the countdown to next year's fest!
