Just Announced: Radio Summer Camp with WMSE Aug. 20-24
Paul Cebar to headline the festival's Backyard BBQ at Cathedral Square
You know what Milwaukee needs? Another music festival. You think we're kidding, but we're not. The pain of announcing Summerfest's meh-worthy lineup in recent weeks has been dulled just a little bit for us by the news that WMSE is throwing a brand new festival this August 20-24 in Cathedral Square Park. Promising to announce more acts over the coming weeks, WMSE unveiled the full lineup for the Backyard BBQ, which will include Cedarwell, Alex Wilson Band, The Championship, Joe Pug, Bill Kirchen, Justin Townes Earle, and Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound.
In a statement on its blog, WMSE said, "As you all can probably tell, the BBQ has a kind of straw hats and lemonade, country, blues and bluegrass kind of feel." We're getting our whittlin' sticks ready, guys, and we're anxious for more announcements.
