MILWAUKEE – Summerfest has announced that American hip-hop artist J. Cole will headline the American Family Insurance Amphitheater this summer.

He will hit the stage on Tuesday, July 3, 2018.

"The first artist signed to Jay-Z’s new Roc Nation label, J. Cole made himself notable through a scholarly approach to the game – no small feat considering his Magna Cum Laude distinction upon graduating from St. John’s University. J. Cole’s most recent work includes the mixtape The Warm Up, as well as a coveted guest verse on JAY-Z’s Blueprint 3 with “A Star is Born”. Soulful and strong, J. Cole’s lyrics touch on everything from his upbringing in North Carolina to the poverty and hopelessness that affect his community."


Tickets go on sale on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at 12:00 p.m. CST at and and include admission to Summerfest.
