The largest “free” stage — with all shows included with fair admission — features “MMMBop” brothers Hanson; Slaughter with Autograph; and Venezuelan band Los Amigos Invisibles — playing different shows of course.
There’ll be a strong Wisconsin showing on the stage, with Milwaukee music scene stars Abby Jeanne and Tigernite headlining opening night; Goran and Morgan from breakout local band the Gufs; and the annual Kids from Wisconsin showcase, tied to the organization’s 50th anniversary.
