Just because summer is almost over (booooooo!) doesn’t mean Milwaukee will be short on festivals going into the fall. For proof, look no further than the just-announced Equinox music fest, set for Saturday, September 25 in the city’s Brewery District.

“Vintersköl Musik Fest in The Brewery District was a great event with amazing musicians and with the difficulties that our city has faced in the last year with so many events canceled, we wanted to celebrate Milwaukee musicians who were especially hit hard during the pandemic,” says Erin Stenum, manager of The Brewery NID #1, in a press release. “Equinox is giving attendees a way to support and enjoy the local music scene and Milwaukee’s ‘City of Festivals’ culture again.”

The mostly outdoor fest will take place in and around Best Place, Bottle House 42, and Nō Studios. Here’s a look at the stacked local lineup:

Paper Holland
Elder Mac
Vincent Van Great
Abby Jeanne

Funk Summit Bass Team
Caley Conway
Valerie Lightheart
Immortal Girlfriend

Shuga Blu
Frugal Stu
Maxwell James
Zed Kenzo

The Oshi

A limited number of all-access tickets are on sale NOW for $25. VIP ticket packages, which include drink tickets for each venue, “light hors d’oeuvres, swag, and access to a private VIP rooftop space and spectacular view of Milwaukee’s skyline and performances at Nō Studios,” are available for $125.

And yes, proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours will be required for entry. Masks and physical distancing will be encouraged for indoor events. Please, please, please, please get vaccinated.
