There are approximately 8,000 stages on the Summerfest grounds, but only one of them can claim to be the festival’s “smallest.” And no, we’re not talking about the JoJo’s Martini Bar stage, which needs to be somewhat large to accommodate all the members of the Eddie Butts Band. (Also, the Rebel Music Stage would like a word.)

We’re talking about the American Family Insurance House, located just behind the Mid Gate Fountain. The stage/house made its debut in 2019 with intimate, acoustic performances from acts like Hanson, Brandi Carlile, Semisonic, and more. Now, the Big Gig has revealed the 2022 lineup for its pint-sized stage. It’s a nice mix of headlining acts (Boyz II Men! JoJo! The singer from Third Eye Blind!) and locals luminaries (Caley Conway! B~Free! Trapper Schoepp!) Here it is:
