MILWAUKEE -- Three of the biggest names in hip hop invade Milwaukee for the ‘Big Gig’. Migos, Big Sean and Future took the same stage Saturday night.

Fans who said they were disappointed in recent years by the hip-hop line up tell TODAY’S TMJ4 Summerfest stepped up its game.

"I paid a little bit of money for it, but three heavy weights, you gotta do what you gotta do sometimes in life," said Migos fan Shiloh Weber.
The trio combines for four Billboard number one albums in 2017 alone. The hype started back in April for Weber when he heard the big announcement.
"I was like, this can't be real, like at first I had to check my phone, I just couldn't believe it,” he said.
It was an event worthy of a first concert for Avery Dixon.  
"I gotta go, I gotta go," he said.  
The same goes for Summerfest regulars since 1980.
"Nobody cares your age; we just go there to celebrate, right?," said Gloria Koskotas of Chicago.
Summerfest organizers said tickets for the headline show have been flying out of the box office for the past two weeks. It was a near sellout for 23,000 full of energy.
"Adrenaline is going to be popping and honestly, I'm going to be jumping around," said Weber.
