The Lineup at the American Family Insurance Amphitheater
The new American Family Insurance Amphitheater is hosting some of the biggest acts at this year’s festival. It’ll kick off with a bang on Sept. 1, with performances by Green Day, Weezer, and Fall Out Boy.
Chance the Rapper will perform two days later, on Sept. 3. This will be his only in-person concert in 2021, so if you want to see him live, now’s your chance.
Other popular acts include Chris Stapleton, Twenty One Pilots, and the Jonas Brothers. It’s amazing how many huge names the organizers managed to get this year.
Oh, and this might be the world’s biggest music festival, but it’s going to have some comedy this year as well. Comedic legend Dave Chappelle will take the stage on Sept. 11. He’s always one of the hottest tickets around when he performs, so don’t expect the tickets to last long.
