As August gives way to September, Milwaukee’s once-bountiful batch of summer festivals has dwindled to just one. Saturday, September 17 doubles as the unofficial end of summer and all its opportunities to listen to live music outside while washing down junk food with tap beer. Soon, fall will descend upon the city, quickly followed by another dreadful winter. The horror! In times like these, it’s important to focus on the things you have, and if you’re a local looking for one last massive block party before bidding summer adieu, you have Bay View Bash.

Entering its 12th year, the Bash takes over a sizable chunk of Kinnickinnic Avenue in Bay View and offers those in attendance an abundance of fried food, a respectable selection of brews from various local breweries, goods from area retailers, and 11 straight hours of music coming from four different stages. We recently announced the rock solid lineup playing the Rush-Mor Stage, but the rest of the day’s entertainment has remained a mystery. With under three weeks standing between now and the event, we finally have Bay View Bash’s full music lineup. Here it is!
