Even though most of Milwaukee’s major festivals are now in the rear view mirror, one of the city’s biggest and best undertakings is still on the horizon. Yes, Bay View Bash will make its long-awaited return to Kinnickinnic Avenue on Saturday, September 16. Though it’s still more than a month away, you’ll want to make sure you’re around to take in the sights and sounds of the behemoth block party.

Milwaukee Record, a part of Bay View Bash since 2018, was once again given the opportunity to program one of the festival’s four stages. We’ll get you the festival’s full lineup in the coming weeks (stay tuned every Tuesday in August for another stage announcement right here on Milwaukee Record). In the meantime, we’ve been given the go-ahead to reveal the entertainment we’ve lined up for this year’s Bash.

This year, we decided to pack our stage—the one on Russell and KK—with an eclectic blend of local music and other activities. We’re pretty darn proud of what we’ve put together for you. Here’s the lineup and set times for the Milwaukee Record Stage. We’ll see you September 16, Milwaukee!

11 a.m. — Punk Rock Yoga with Sarah from Healium
12:45 p.m. — Holy Pinto
2 p.m. — Rat Bath
3:15 p.m. — Gold Steps

[Intermission – Check out what’s happening at other stages!]

6 p.m. — The Trusty Knife
7:15 p.m. — Klassik
8:45 p.m. — Bay View Babes Drag Show

But there’s more! For the first time ever, Bay View Bash will have its very own beer. Central Waters Brewing brewed “Bash Bräu” at its Milwaukee location. The crushable Kölsch-style ale will be available in cans at this year’s Bay View Bash. However, a variety of Bay View bars, restaurants, and even The Vine beer garden will offer Bash Bräu on draft throughout the month of August. There will also be a release party for the beer at Blackbird Bar on Wednesday, August 9 from 6-9 p.m..

Proceeds from Bash Bräu sales will benefit non-profits in the 53207 zip code. Check out the list of places you can pick up a pint of this Bay View Bash and Central Waters collaboration below. YES!
