    During the festival, the spotlight shines on over 800 acts, over 1,000 performances, 11 stages, delectable food and beverages and interactive activities, all in a world-class festival setting. Patrons can also enjoy Miller Lite, the Official Beer of Summerfest.

    Ever been to Summerfest? If so, how was it? We totally wish we lived in Milwaukee for a few weeks this summer so we could hit every Summerfest show.
