The Big Snow Show is technically in its 16th year, but because it was canceled last year due to the pandemic, FM102/1 decided to split the difference and call it "Big Snow Show 15 ½." Works for us!

The two-night event kicks off on Thursday, Dec. 9 at The Rave with four-time Grammy award winners from Nashville, Kings Of Leon. Special guests Wilderado will open.

The second night, Tuesday, Dec. 14 features headliners The Lumineers along with Cold War Kids.

“We are so happy for the return of Big Snow Show! We’ve all missed live music so much throughout the pandemic, so to bring it back with two of the biggest bands to ever grace the Big Snow Show stage is an incredible thrill that we are immensely proud of," says Program Director Michelle Rutkowski. 

A limited number of two-night general admission tickets to Big Snow Show 15 ½ will be available only during a special presale on Thursday, Nov. 11 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Single-day tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, Nov. 10 at 10 a.m. and are $60 for general admission or $70 for VIP Balcony.

Proof of vaccination or negative test within 72 hours will be required for admission both nights.

"Milwaukee, get ready! These are going to be two really amazing nights of music," says Rutkowski.

Tickets will be available at, The Rave box office or by phone (414) 342-7283.
