The full lineup for the 2021 edition of Milwaukee’s 2021 Summerfest, which will take place this September, has been revealed.

Among the many veteran acts slated to perform headlining sets on the event’s Festival Stage are ZZ Top, Styx, REO Speedwagon, George Thorogood and the Destroyers, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Night Ranger, Living Colour, Queensryche and The Psychedelic Furs.

In addition, ex-Talking Heads keyboardist Jerry Harrison will team up with one-time Talking Heads touring guitarist Adrian Belew and Brooklyn-based group Turkuaz for a set celebrating his old band’s 1980 album Remain in Light.

Summerfest also will include a series of ticketed concerts at Milwaukee’s American Family Insurance Amphitheater, among them a previously announced September 15 show featuring Dave Matthews Band. Guns N’ Roses was among the artists originally slated to play one of these concerts before the festival was postponed from this summer until September because of the COVID-19 pandemic. An official date for GN’R’s 2021 Summerfest gig currently is pending.

This year’s Summerfest will be held September 2-4, 9-11 and 16-18. Visit for the complete lineup and all ticket info.
