Another day, another live music announcement for Milwaukee – this one adding yet another Summerfest headliner to 2023's slate: rising country star Zach Bryan, who will take the Big Gig's biggest stage on Friday, July 7. 

Bryan last played Milwaukee last year at Summerfest, headlining the Miller Lite Oasis. Since then, the country up-and-comer has only gotten more popular thanks to his new album "American Heartbreak" and impressive streaming numbers for hits like "Heading South" and most recently "Something in the Orange."

Tickets for Zach Bryan's Summerfest headliner show will go on sale beginning Friday, Nov. 18 at Summerfest's website and Ticketmaster, as well as in person at the Summerfest box office. 

With this week's announcements, the Big Gig lineup is starting to come together complete with Bryan, Zac Brown Band on June 23, and Imagine Dragons and AJR on closing night on July 8. Stay tuned to OnMilwaukee for more Summerfest and Milwaukee live music updates.

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.
