The final Marcus Amphitheater open date for Summerfest 2014 has been filled. OneRepublic will headline on July 1, and tickets go on sale this weekend. This announcement came up as a bit of a surprise for some people who thought that Dave Matthews Band might add a second date. That's not the case this year.
With the last spot now booked, the Summerfest headline acts are as follows:
June 25 - Bruno Mars
June 26 - Lady Gaga
June 27 - Brad Paisley with Darius Rucker
June 28 - Luke Brian
June 29 - Outkast
July 1 - OneRepublic
July 2 - Dave Matthews Band
July 3 - Zac Brown
July 4 - Motley Crue with Alice Cooper
July 5 - Fall Out Boy with Paramore
July 6 - Usher
This is one of the strongest lineups in many years. We normally see Dave Matthews playing Alpine Valley. Lady Gaga has such a huge stage set up that we're surprised to see her performing at the Marcus Amp. Usher has just one date set for this summer, and he's coming here to Milwaukee. Finally Bruno Mars is probably one of the hottest acts on tour this summer, so get ready for a sold out show.
