The Outlaw Music Festival, Lizzo, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony Headline Summerfest

Willie Nelson brings his Outlaw Music Festival back to the Big Gig with a full day and night of music. Among the highlights are Phil Lesh and Friends, the Avett Brothers, Allison Krauss, and Counting Crows. Wisconsin’s own Trapper Schoepp will kick it off at 1:00 this afternoon.


Meanwhile, on the grounds stages, Lizzo is one of the hottest acts in music who is touring behind her third studio album, Cuz I Love You and figures to pack the Harley Davidson Roadhouse at 10:00. One of the biggest and most influential hip-hop and R&B acts of the 90s, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony headline the Johnson Controls World Sound Stage at 10:00.

Over at the Uline Warehouse, Neon Trees headlines at 9:45 while the always-energetic Andrew W.K. plays an afternoon set at 4:00. LANCO is a relatively new country band on the rise but has in its four years developed a loyal following after their 2017 Hot Country number one hit “Greatest Love Story.” They’ll hit the U.S. Cellular Connection Stage at 9:45, while X, one of the most influential punk rock bands in history, plays at 4:00.

DJ Paul Oakenfold is at the Miller Lite Oasis at 4:00 and then after a full afternoon of other DJ sets, Gryffin goes on at 10:00. St. Paul and the Broken Bones tops the Briggs and Stratton Big Backyard at 9:30 with 90s favorite 10,000 Maniacs playing at 4:00.

Foghat is at the BMO Harris Pavilion at 4:00 while Elle King plays at 9:45 but be sure to get there by 8:00 for tonight’s sleeper pick, a singer you might not know but definitely shouldn’t miss. Donna Missal has a huge voice and an incredible talent for songwriting. She’s been releasing songs since 2013 but just put out her debut album last year—a seamless blend of elements of hip-hop, soul, and rock and roll. Catch her at the BMO Harris Pavilion at 8:00 this evening.
