Even though most of Milwaukee’s major festivals are now in the rear view mirror, one of the city’s biggest and best undertakings is still on the horizon. Yes, Bay View Bash will make its long-awaited return to Kinnickinnic Avenue on Saturday, September 17. Though it’s still a few weeks away, you’ll want to make sure you’re around to take in the sights and sounds of the behemoth block party.

Earlier this month, we kicked off the Bay View Bash announcements off by revealing the all-local lineup playing the Milwaukee Record Stage. We followed it up last week by announcing the touring talent set to take the brand new X-Ray Arcade Stage. Today, we’re honored to unveil the WMSE Stage lineup. The long-running public radio station has a whole day of programming set to take place on the southernmost stage on Kinnickinnic.

The second year of the WMSE Stage will kick off with a live remote broadcast by the station’s popular Saturday Afternoon Boogie Bang show from noon to 3 o’clock. After 3 p.m., the space will host a handful of impressive area acts and a headlining set by John Chiaverina’s new post-Juiceboxxx musical moniker, RUSTBELT. Here’s the lineup (and the set times) for the WMSE Stage. Stay tuned for the Rushmor Records Stage lineup later this month. We’ll see you September 17, Milwaukee!

12 p.m. — Boogie Bang Gang (Live Remote Broadcast)
3:30 p.m. — The Grovelers
5 p.m. — NilexNile
6:15 p.m. — Fox Face
7:30 p.m. — RUSTBELT
