For the past 17 years, the East Side’s annual Summer Soulstice Music Festival has marked the first day of summer with music, food, drinks, and that one guy who always shows up carrying a giant lizard. On Saturday, June 24, from noon until midnight on E. North Avenue (between Oakland and Prospect Avenues, and on Murray Avenue), the fest will return for 2017. It will come complete with another top-shelf musical lineup full of Milwaukee favorites like WebsterX, Midwest Death Rattle, De La Buena, The Fatty Acids, Lex Allen, Whips, and more. An arts fair curated by The Waxwing, food from East Side restaurants, food trucks, dodgeball, BMX stunt bikes, and other family-friendly activities round out the free fest.

Check out the entire lineup below, and get your Milwaukee-themed tank-tops and/or giant lizards ready.
