Summerfest announces 2023 festival dates

MILWAUKEE — The dates for the 55th anniversary of Summerfest were announced Tuesday.

Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. said the annual music festival will take place over three consecutive weekends on June 22-24, June 29-July 1 and July 6-8 in 2023.

The three-weekend format was introduced in 2021, as festival officials said the new model allowed for extended booking windows for talent.

Since its inception in 1968, Summerfest has seen hundreds of performances across 12 stages, throughout the 75-acre festival grounds along Lake Michigan in downtown Milwaukee.
