MILWAUKEE, WI (July 23, 2021) – Summerfest presented by American Family Insurance and the Experience Milwaukee podcast are excited to announce a 5-part series to showcase Milwaukee through Summerfest and Summerfest Tech. This announcement also positions Experience Milwaukee as a podcast partner of Summerfest in 2021.

“As someone who grew up in Milwaukee, Summerfest has always been a huge part of my life and the focus of every summer,” said Steve Glynn, founder of Experience Milwaukee. “With a shared vision of shining a light on the amazing, positive experiences people can have in Milwaukee and at Summerfest and Summerfest Tech, it’s truly a pinch me moment to announce this partnership!”
“Steve and I have a lot of fun talking to people with a true passion for what they do in Milwaukee; it energizes us and our audience,” said co-host Adam Derus. “And what better way to do more of that than partnering with Summerfest? We’re excited to be a part of it all!”
Through this partnership, the Summerfest Series will integrate a variety of topics surrounding the festival, including interviews with several emerging artists including REYNA, Brett Newski, Grace Weber, and Trapper Schoepp. The first episode is available now wherever you get your podcasts and will continue throughout September with “from-the-grounds” recap episodes.
