It’s amazing that Chill On The Hill has only been around for 14 years. The concept of the mid-week Bay View occurrence is so simple: laying out on a blanket and imbibing food and beverages brought from home (or purchased from a series of vendors on site) whilst enjoying a diverse bevy of homegrown talent. No matter what you’re into, we’re sure there’s something for most every taste under the Humboldt Park amphitheater at least one Tuesday this summer.

There’s no question Chill is a summer staple in Milwaukee, but what is in question is who will be playing this year. Well, our friends at WMSE just announced the performers who will provide your park playlist. From Lex Allen and Mortgage Freeman to B~Free and Trapper Schoepp, with Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and American Legion Band thrown in for good measure, Tuesdays are going to be fun in Bay View. There’s even a special “Friday Night Chill” this year. Here’s the full lineup:
