Here at Milwaukee Record, we employ a sentient machine known as the Great Job, Milwaukee! Bot (similar to OnMilwaukee‘s Jeff Sherman Bot 8000) to keep track of the city’s many appearances on dopey online lists, as well as any time a national publication says something nice about us. Last month, the little bugger brought us the news that The New York Times thought Milwaukee was “good (and cheap).” Today, it’s proud to announce that venerable music mag Rolling Stone likes Summerfest. beep-boop-beep

In an always convenient slideshow entitled “Summer 2016’s 30 Must-See Music Festivals,” RS has this to say about the Big Gig:

While most big-name festivals court yuppies and young people, Summerfest attempts to get all of Milwaukee walking around with tie-dye and CamelBaks. No festival is more accessible—weekday admission is just 13 dollars—and few book nearly as broadly.

No word yet from the yuppies and young people the rest of the city is actively courting 24/7. whiz-beep-whir [via Tap Milwaukee]
