Festival Description

Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. officials are excited to announce plans for a new Alternative and Modern Rock music festival that will take place Friday, June 4 and Saturday, June 5, to kick off the summer festival season at Henry Maier Festival Park.

The management of Summerfest will plan, promote and produce the new music festival which will feature three stages of Alternative and Modern Rock bands, including a non-stop line-up of national and regional headliners, action sports competitions, marketplace shopping and interactive exhibits for young adult music fans.

FM102/1 will be the presenting radio sponsor for the festival.
“The first weekend in June will provide music fans with nationally and internationally known alternative and modern rock bands. It will be a fun weekend and a great way to kick-off summer,” said Don Smiley, President and Chief Executive Officer of Milwaukee World Festival, Inc.

The festival is being launched with a public naming contest. Music fans, artists, designers and festival-goers everywhere will have the opportunity to name and brand the festival. The contest begins today at the website http://www.yourmusicfest.com. Submissions should include a logo treatment and will be accepted online through February 21 with Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. officials determining the top three finalists’ submissions. Starting March 1, 2010 the public will have one week to review the finalists’ submissions and vote to determine the name and logo of the new festival at http://www.yourmusicfest.com.

The naming contest winner, preliminary music lineup and other details will be announced on March 10, 2010, along with the new festival’s official website. The naming contest winner will receive a VIP experience at the festival, including roundtrip airfare for two (originating in the Continental US), hotel accommodations in Milwaukee, tickets to the festival, an assigned parking space, VIP hospitality access, backstage passes, meet & greets, signed merchandise from the bands, and a themed profile on Summerfest.com and the new festival’s website.
