If you thought the return of the Great Milwaukee Summer was complete, think again. Today, WMSE announced the lineup of its ever-popular Backyard BBQ. The 12th annual shindig will set up shop at Humboldt Park on Saturday, August 27, from noon to 8 p.m.

What can you expect from the Backyard BBQ? Food, fun, and music, of course! And hey! This year’s music lineup is topped by Seratones, a soulful rock band based in Shreveport, Louisiana. Fun! Here’s the full lineup (listed from headliner to opener):

“We wanted to once again bring you an incredibly vibrant headliner along with a great cross section of music from Milwaukee’s very vibrant music scene,” says station manager Tom Crawford in a press release. “We feel incredibly lucky to have Seratones as our headliner and know the local support will only heighten an incredible evening of music.”

WMSE’s Backyard BBQ is a free event that offers fun for the whole family. For more information, go to the station’s website.
