Next week School of Rock returns to Milwaukee, WI to take the stage at Summerfest, the world's largest music festival. During the July Fourth weekend, the festival will play host to major artists from all genres. This year School of Rock students will be joining the likes of Shawn Mendes, The Weekend and Blake Shelton at the annual festival and we could not be more proud of our students for getting to this level of performance.
72 bands from almost 50 schools worldwide will be participating. Their whirlwind weekend starts Thursday with a performance at Lincoln Hall in Chicago, IL where they'll play their sets and generate buzz for the rest of their performances. Friday brings them to The Rave, a historic venue in Milwaukee, where School of Rock students will get the feel for the city and its audiences. Saturday and Sunday they arrive at Summerfest, playing multiple stages over the two-day span. The experiences will combine to create an incredible taste for what it's like as a gigging professional musician. Check out the Summerfest site for more info about our students' performances!
