On the 24th of June, Milwaukee comes alive as people from far and near gather to jam to some of the worlds most talented music artists. This year one can expect to see a variety of gigs from Keith Urban to Linken Park. This event is not necessarily strictly country, but instead appeals to an eclectic taste. One of the greater events on the itinerary is the place where regular artists that have not made the big times, are given a chance to play. Send your applications to Reverbnation before 22 June 2015.
