Courtesy of SummerfestThe list of headliners for the 2018 edition of Milwaukee’s annual Summerfest has been announced and it features popular artists from a wide variety of genres, including quite a few veteran acts.

There also will be performances by blues great Buddy Guy and by Cornerstones of Rock, which brings together five Chicago-area groups from the late 1960s and early ’70s: The Buckinghams, The Cryan’ Shames, The Ides of March, The Shadows of Knight and The New Colony Six.

The 2018 Summerfest will take place June 27 to July 1 and July 3 to July 8 at Henry Maier Festival Park in downtown Milwaukee. Billed as “the World’s Largest Music Festival,” the 11-day event features more than 800 acts performing on 12 stages.
