“Summerfest is probably the one show, the most rewarding show for me as an artist, it’s a real festival for me to play at,” Danny Gokey says. “It’s just the hometown crowd.”
It’s been 6 (long) years since Danny Gokey has headlined a stage at the “World’s Largest Music Festival” in his hometown of Milwaukee, WI. But on Sunday, July 2nd he returns for Summerfest’s 50th Anniversary celebration! Danny will return to the Briggs & Stratton “Big Backyard Stage” at 6 PM for a family friendly time and show.
Other headliners also performing that day is Pink, Steve Miller Band, Andy Grammer, Ziggy Marley, Peter Frampton, Laura Alaina, Dylan Scott and more! There are over 100 artists listed at Summerfest.com
The Summerfest grounds was the location for the famous, 2009 “Danny Gokey Days”. Danny returned to Milwaukee as one of the Top 3, “American Idol” finalists for a hometown visit and concert. Do you remember this?
Milwaukee “American Idol” hopeful Danny Gokey returns home for a day of pomp and ceremony today, visiting TV and radio stations and Milwaukee landmarks in advance of a 4:30 p.m. parade down Chicago toward the Summerfest grounds, where he’ll give a short 5:15 p.m. concert. The whole day will be filmed by “American Idol,” which will broadcast the footage next week—so if you want to see yourself on national television, spare no expense on glitter for your “I Heart Danny” signs… Shepherd Express –05/08/2009
Danny performed in concert in 2010 and 2011 at Summerfest and then did subsequent promo events for the festival (Land the Big Gig). We are glad that the wait is almost over to see Danny return to music festival!
Danny’s lead single, “My Best Days Are Ahead of Me”, is featured in this video from Summerfest as performed in 2010:
