The late night music and roaring crowds will soon be back — but this time, in the fall.

Summerfest, previously a two week-long festival in the summer, will span three weekends in September this year. And that’s not the only change. 

From COVID-19 to worker shortages, Summerfest has had to make some adjustments. It’s hard to keep them all straight.

Here’s what you need to know if you’re heading out to Summerfest in September:

The basics: When and where is Summerfest 

When: Noon to midnight, September 2-4, 9-11 and 16-18.  

Where: Maier Festival Park, 200 N. Harbor Drive, Milwaukee.

What: More than 800 bands on 11 stages over nine days.
