It’s amazing that Chill On The Hill has only been around for 15 years. The concept of the mid-week Bay View occurrence is so simple: laying out on a blanket, imbibing food and beverages brought from home (or purchased from a series of vendors on site), and enjoying a diverse bevy of homegrown talent. No matter what you’re into, 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 Trapper Schoepp and Rose Of The West to Vincent Van Great and Buffalo Gospel, with Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and American Legion Band thrown in for good measure, Tuesdays are going to be fun in Bay View.
