For the amount of music, food, and fun available Summerfest Milwaukee tickets are a bargain. Yes, you need to buy an additional ticket to get into the Marcus Amphitheater, but there is so much to do and see on the Summerfest grounds, you could possibly skip the Marcus Amphitheater shows once in a while.
The Summerfest admission prices have not gone up every year, so you know that it's still about the music. You may have to pay extra for a beer or food, but getting in the door will not cost too much. We're still six months away from the first Marcus Amp. show, but it's exciting to think about it.
