Summer is officially here!  The kids are out of school, the temperatures are really heating up, and the music festival season is upon us.    July is typically one of the biggest months for the increasingly popular music festival scene.  In our 2012 July Music Festival Guide we will tell you about some of the biggest festivals taking place this upcoming month and point out some other interesting festivals you might not have heard of.

Talking about music festivals in July would not be complete if we didn’t at least mention what is dubbed as the World’s Largest Music Festival- Milwaukee Summerfest.  This years edition will include headliners Rascal Flatts, Gary Allen with Rodney Atkins, Kelly Clarkson with Train, Lady Antebellum, The Beach Boys, Tiesto, Iron Maiden, Zac Brown Band, Big Time Rush with Cody Simpson, Aerosmith, and Neil Diamond.

One of the festivals you may not have heard of before is Camp Bisco.  This electronic music festival is actually in its 11th year but has really grown recently as the popularity of electronic music has skyrocketed.  Camp Bisco 11 will feature hot acts such as the Disco Biscuits, Skrillex, Amon Tobin Isam, Crystal Castles, Bassnectar, Big Boi, Zeds Dead, Portugal the Man, Lotus, and tons more!

Milwaukee Summerfest Heats up June 29th – July9th

Summerfest11 days, 11 stages over 700 bands.  That is just a brief summary of the Milwaukee Summerfest, the “Big Gig”. Every summer, usually around July 4th, droves of fans travel to Henry Maier Festival Park on Lake Michigan in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to take part in the annual “World’s Largest Music Festival” as dubbed by Guinness World Records in 1999.  Summerfest usually has crowds of about 800,000 – 1,000,000 people over the 11 days to see amazing, headlining acts.  This has been an annual tradition since 1968.  The line-up is a who’s who of popular and familiar bands.  The bands range from Pop to Country to Hip Hop to Rap and everything in between.  There is absolutely something at Summerfest for everyone. What’s even better is that shows are “free” with purchase of admission of $8 – 15.  The headlining acts at the Marcus Amphitheatre are an additional cost however. There are also comedy shows and extreme sports exhibitions.  All in all, it’s a pretty outstanding deal.  If you’ve never heard, for been to Summerfest for that matter, you really should.

This year the opening headliner is Peter Gabriel and the New Blood Orchestra.

The exceptionally remarkable line-up is as follows, but please keep in mind that this is a very small sampling of the bands performing at the event.  The headlining act of the day is bolded.
