MILWAUKEE -- The excessive heat warning issued by the National Weather Service has been extended to Sunday, July 1, 2018 until 4 p.m. 

Due to this extension, Summerfest will continue to offer the following services for their fans during festival operating hours on Sunday:

Aurora Health Care, Summerfest's exclusive health care provider, said guests should drink more water than usual if they're attending the Big Gig, and don't wait to feel thirsty to drink water. Wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing, and pace yourself - don't drink too much.

Guests should also take frequent breaks in shaded areas or cooling tents, and keep in mind that alcohol increases your risk for dehydration.
