Neroli’s Top 10 Summerfest Picks!

At Neroli Salon and Spa we are so excited for Summerfest 2021! There is no better way to end the summer and kick off fall than with the World’s Largest Music Festival located right here in Milwaukee. We know you are just as excited as we are, so we decided to share with you our top picks for all things music, food, shopping, events, and of course, photo-ops. Make sure to get festival makeup ready with the trending looks for this fall.

We expect Summerfest to be crazy busy this year. Parking is always a nightmare, but no need to worry. Feel free to park in the parking lot across from our Neroli salon and walk to Summerfest! Not only is it close, but it is also a lot cheaper.

Of course, concerts are always a must, but Summerfest offers some great events and hidden gems throughout the park that deserve some recognition. Check out our top 10 Summerfest picks and tag us on Instagram @nerolisalonspa or #NeroliSalonSpa at each location you attend!

Ward’s House of Prime

Located near the Sky Glider across from the UScellular Connections Stage

Most of Milwaukee knows about Saz’s, but the Ward’s House of Prime is truly an undercover gem. Known for their prime rib specialties, amazing burgers, and of course cheese curds, they offer the best festival meals for everyone. For our Vegan, Gluten-Free, and Vegetarian readers—their “Impossible Burger” is a must!

Robby’s Roasted Corn

Located near the Generac Power Stage

A Wisconsin tradition! For 30 + years, festival goers have enjoyed corn grown in the deep South from Robby’s Roasted Corn stand. Take part in the Summerfest tradition, and enjoy a delicious corn on the cobb!

Bubly Bar

Located on the Lakewalk

Bubly bar is making its first appearance at Summerfest this year with some of the best Bubly cocktails and mocktails out there! While you are sipping on your summer drink, enjoy some of the best views of Lake Michigan and take some Instagram worthy selfies with the Swing Photo-op!

Miley Cyrus

September 17, 2021 @ 7:30p.m. | American Family Insurance Ampitheater

Miley is back and better than ever and we are definitely ready for a Party in the U.S.A.! She’s taken on a new approach as a punk rock/pop/80’s vibe, and we are here for it! One thing is for sure, she can put on a show. You do not want to miss Miley taking on Milwaukee.

Custom made pieces hand-drawn and crafted in Milwaukee, WI. Unique and artistic décor includes: art prints, cards, button pins, and magnets. Perfect for your Summerfest 2021 Souvenirs!


September 02, 2021 @ 10:00p.m. | Free US-cellular Connection Stage

“I’ll put you in a mansion, somewhere in Wis-can-son” In Milwaukee we always appreciate a shoutout for Wisconsin. Now he will be in Milwaukee and we are curious to see if he “likes the bartenderrr” (keep us posted!). He always knows how to put on a show, and surely a concert you do not want to miss.

Zac Brown Band

September 10, 2021 @ 7:30p.m. | American Family Insurance Ampitheater

We all love a good country rock band and “a little bit of Chicken fried…!” Known for their newest #1 hit single on Billboard’s top Country hits “The Man Who Loves You the Most” and their classic “Chicken Fried” you will not want to miss them on the main stage!

Big Wild

September 02, 2021 @ 10:15p.m. | Free Miller Light Oasis Stage

This producer, composer, and now vocalist takes a whole new unique approach to electronic music. He is sure to provide Milwaukee with the total festival experience with his unique approach to beats and vibes. His craft reaches Indie, Pop, EDM, and even some hip-hop beats. What a perfect way to get the best of all worlds!

Leon Bridges

September 03, 2021 @ 9:30p.m. | Free BMO Harris Pavilion

Even though it is not “July” Leon is still making his appearance in Milwaukee. This Grammy-award winning R&B recording artist will be appearing on a free stage this year and we could not be more excited. We hope he “loves every detail, every detail” of Milwaukee.
