It's that time again, in two weeks Summerfest 2018 starts and YES, CopyWrite is back as OFFICIAL MEDIA for the "World's Largest Music Festival."
This year, Summerfest has FINALLY made it a priority to add and integrate hip-hop/rap into its lineup along with an impressive push to have local acts opening up for leaders in the industry. This year, for almost EVERY DAY of the festival, you will find a hip-hop/rap artist(s) waiting to hit the stage.
Our only complaint is their 2018 Emerging Artists Series, where they once again have not shown or feature any of the Milwaukee talent we know and love other than Milwaukee band, Bo & Airo. P.S. Summerfest we would be happy to give you a list of "Emerging Artists" for 2019; drop us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
All shade a side, you will find someone you want to see at Summerfest this year. We can promise that.
See our CW guide below.
Summerfest is June 27-July 1 and July 3 - July 98
