Here's the schedule for Summerfest's Emerging Artists Series

Walk The Moon. Maren Morris. X Ambassadors. In past years, before they were major names, these and many other noteworthy bands were a part of Summerfest's Emerging Artists Series. This year, in the midst of its 50th anniversary, Summerfest will try to add yet another name to that impressive list with its newly announced Emerging Artists Series lineup, with up-and-coming talent from across the city, country and globe all hitting the Big Gig stage – and vying for your vote.

The Johnson Controls World Stage will once again host the Emerging Artists Series festivities, with 44 musicians and bands hitting the stage and hoping to score the most fan votes that day, earning an "Emerging Artists Series Care Package" featuring almost $3,000 in gear and merchandise to help them keep on rising up the radio charts.
