MILWAUKEE — Summerfest is almost here and to ramp up the excitement, Milwaukee World Festival Inc. has been sharing details on this year's festival and all it will entail.

On Friday, Summerfest announced how fans can get into the festival for free on June 23, Stomp Out Hunger Day.

According to the festival, this is the 15th year the special hunger action day has been a part of Summerfest. In those 15 years, thousands of tons of food have been donated to those in need.

This year, in an effort to get donations from festival-goers, Summerfest has a promotion where anyone who brings at least two jars of peanut butter to the gates can get into the festival for free.

The promotion is only for fans who arrive between 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. on the 23rd and donations will be accepted at any of the three entrance gates.

Also on Friday, Summerfest announced the lineup for the Johnson Controls World Sound Stage featuring artists like Remi Wolf, Guster, The Happy Fits, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, BoDeans, Shamarr Allen, and more.

The festival said each night will also end with a DJ session on that stage.

“We look forward to bringing great music and experiences to the Johnson Controls World Sound Stage, driving a great discussion on technology at Summerfest Tech, and helping to bring the community together to support those in need through the Stomp Out Hunger initiative," said Phil Clement, Chief Marketing Officer, Johnson Controls.
