Like each and every summer, metro Milwaukee will play host dozens of festivals, block parties, and free weekly music celebrations between June and September that all help make enduring the six to eight other snowy months almost worthwhile. If you want to get ready for summer, look no further than the lineup for a weekly outdoor music series.

Friday afternoon, Washington Park Wednesdays quietly announced its lineup. The free mid-week music series features a wide range of local acts performing under the gorgeous Washington Park bandshell. If the scenery alone isn’t worth the trip, this year’s downright awesome list of performers certainly is. Here’s who’s playing this summer.
