Summerfest and ReverbNation partner again on artist submission platform

Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. and ReverbNation launch year three of a three-year agreement that provides up-and-coming artists the opportunity to take the stage and perform for an audience at Summerfest, "The World's Largest Music Festival" on a marquee year.

Since 1968, Summerfest has brought some of the biggest names in music history, along with local favorites and emerging talent, to play for more than 850,000 music fans annually along the shores of Lake Michigan. This 11-day festival features more than 800 artists spanning all genres, from alternative rock to country, hip hop, Top 40, classic rock, indie and everything in between. Artists interested in the chance to perform at Summerfest's 50th can submit at Reverbnation.com now through March 1, 2017 for free.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with ReverbNation for the third year," said Bob Babisch, Vice President of Entertainment, Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. "This year will be our 50th Summerfest and ReverbNation will undoubtedly introduce us to new and interesting talent that will greatly enhance the live music experience of this milestone celebration."

ReverbNation provides approximately 4 million artists with exciting opportunities and promotional tools to achieve their career goals. This, combined with ReverbNation's unique curation capabilities, offers the perfect opportunity for Summerfest to discover new and unique talent to build a diverse lineup year after year.

"Performing at Summerfest is an immense opportunity for any band," said Mike Doernberg, CEO of ReverbNation. "Summerfest's belief in the quality of talent on our roster and in our ability to identify the most promising ReverbNation artists through our curation capability is very gratifying to everyone at this company. And once again, Summerfest has worked with us to make the submission process free of charge, which was hugely important to us. We're looking forward to another great year with Summerfest."
