For 15 years, Bay View Neighborhood Association’s Chill On The Hill brought music to Humboldt Park’s band chalet every Tuesday between the beginning of June and the end of August. Chill organizers made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 shows on account of the COVID-19 crisis, but last summer brought about the triumphant return of the beloved concert series.
We’re pleased to report the series will be back again in 2022! Chill On The Hill’s 17th season will feature 13 weeks of free, family-friendly entertainment. The concert series will kick off on June 7 and will run through August 30. Like last year, Chill will expand its footprint by designating the space between the band chalet and the Vine Beer Garden for show-goers. The park road will also be closed between Howell Ave. and Idaho St. on Tuesdays to allow more space for food vendors and guests.
The concerts, which begin at 6:30 p.m., feature a loaded local lineup that includes Milwaukee music mainstays like The LOL, Black Challenger, No Seatbelts, The MilBillies, Paul Cebar, Gego y Nony, and a season-ending performance by Vincent Van Great and Amanda Huff. This year’s lineup also brings the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and a “100th Anniversary Celebration” of the American Legion Band to the chalet. Go find your lawn chairs, break out your comfiest blanket, put some beverages in the cooler, and check out the 2022 Chill On The Hill lineup below.
