As you may have noticed, this year’s Summer Soulstice (the 20th installment, btw) has been pared down and “reimagined.” There will be two main stages instead of three, and there will be DJs in Black Cat Alley. Like previous installments, however, the event will feature the usual winning mix of food and drink vendors, arts and crafts, probably that yarn dog thing, and hopefully the guy who always used to bring his lizard.

“Our goal was to develop a lineup of diverse, exciting artists and performers that would breathe life back into the live music festival experience that we have been missing the last few years,” says talent and booking curator Jayk Burczyk in a press release. “This year’s Soulstice will provide an opportunity for concert goers to see some of the best entertainers the Greater Milwaukee Area has to offer.”
