●    The festival will also shine a spotlight on County Donegal, with artists including The Screaming Orphans, Altan, The Henry Girls, and The High Seas.

●    Fans can get a “buy one, get one free” deal on general admission tickets from now through March 17th.

For their highly anticipated 40th festival celebration, Milwaukee Irish Fest has announced its entertainment lineup, full of emerging artists, yearly staples, and some returning favorites. More than 100 acts will convene on the Milwaukee lakefront for a special festival celebration from August 13-16.

The lineup will include performances from fan favorites like We Banjo 3, Hermitage Green, and Eileen Ivers, plus newcomers such as Clare Sands, Wallis Bird, and more.

Additional acts performing at the festival include Liz Carroll with Daithi Sproule, Jimmy Keane with Mick Moloney and Pat Broaders, Brave Giant, The Murphy Beds, Red Hot Chilli Pipers, Cherish the Ladies, The High Kings, Gaelic Storm, Moxie, Rory Makem and Donal Clancy, Boxing Banjo, MEGA Trad (winner of the 2020 TradHub Contest at TradFest Temple Bar), Shane Hennessy, Seamus Kennedy, Talisk, Winifred Horan Trio, and The Drowsy Lads.

Each year, Milwaukee Irish Fest highlights the music, culture, and tourism of a specific county in Ireland. This year’s official showcase will put a spotlight on the rich cultural heritage and offerings of County Donegal. Milwaukee Irish Fest is partnering with Donegal Tourism and Donegal County Council to develop attractions at the festival that will present the diversity of the County, such as its culinary culture, artistic community, history, and more. The Donegal music lineup consists of Altan, The Screaming Orphans, The Henry Girls, and The High Seas.

“As we often say, you won’t believe all the things that Irish Fest has to offer until you visit us, and the music is no different,” said Mike Mitchell, executive director of CelticMKE, the host and organizer of Milwaukee Irish Fest. “From indie-folk to traditional Irish, there’s a wide variety of music, so there’s something for everyone to enjoy!”

Milwaukee Irish Fest is currently running a “buy one, get one free” ticket promotion on $20 general admission tickets through March 17th, St. Patrick's Day. Four-day passes are also on sale for only $35. And, as always, children 12 and under get free admission to the festival.
