The party of the summer takes place at the crossroads of 6th & Canal over Labor Day weekend. Make plans to join the Harley-Davidson Museum August 29 – September 1 during Milwaukee Rally weekend for FREE live entertainment, the H-D Museum Annual Custom Bike Show, acres and acres of motorcycle thrills, and miles and miles of rolling sculptures.

The H-D Museum – where Harley-Davidson history and custom culture come to life – will serve as the central rally point all-weekend long. In addition to performances from a variety of national, regional and local musicians and artists – all for free on two separate stages – the H.D. Museum will come alive with stunt shows, pinstriping artists exhibiting their mastery, tattooers spilling ink to create that ultimate souvenir and so much more. All outdoor entertainment – including the live music – is free and open to the public.

This weekend also marks one of the final times you can take in the thrill, chills and spills found in the H-D Museum’s special summer exhibit, “Daredevils: A Century of Spine-Tingling Spectacles” before it closes September 8.

Plus, our Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) brothers and sisters are invited to Milwaukee for a family reunion – aka the H.O.G. National Rally. Make a pilgrimage to the home of Harley-Davidson and enjoy a great city with great friends. Save the date and look forward to a weekend full of riding and events in conjunction with the Harley-Davidson Museum – where H.O.G. members get in free – and the Milwaukee Rally. Not a H.O.G. member yet? Join now!

BIG/GUN – an AC/DC tribute band – was formed in 2001, and quickly proved to be the most authentic & complete AC/DC tribute touring act. Come see & hear the closest thing to AC/DC themselves, performing all the hits from both the Bon and Brian eras. For those about to rock, we salute you!

COLT FORD

FRIDAY, AUGUST 30, 2019

COLT FORD

THE JOSEPHINES

FRIDAY, AUGUST 30, 2019

THE JOSEPHINES

7 p.m.
A rag tag group of rock ’n roll-drenched country hoodlums from Bowling Green, KY, the Josephines are the embodiment of the country rebel spirit. Formed in 2017 in a bid to “have fun, make some cash & raise some hell,” the boys have been doing just that since day one.

J RODDY WALSTON & THE BUSINESS

SATURDAY, AUGUST 31, 2019

J RODDY WALSTON & THE BUSINESS

9 p.m.
Road warriors from the time they formed in 2002, JRWATB has long been an underground favorite, toiling away in clubs and bars and carving out its own niche outside of the rock mainstream. The “bar band” sound of the past has been replaced by an aspirational, booming cacophony that could fill stadiums.

JON SPENCER & THE HITMAKERS

SATURDAY, AUGUST 31, 2019

JON SPENCER & THE HITMAKERS

8 p.m.
Jon Spencer is back. Often imitated, never duplicated, the original NYC underground-rock legend returns from the wilderness with twelve red-hot hits, each more powerful than the last. This is the truth serum America has been craving, the beginning of a rock ’n roll special counsel that takes no prisoners and puts the squares on ice!

ALLEN MACK MYERS MOORE

SATURDAY, AUGUST 31, 2019

ALLEN MACK MYERS MOORE

7 p.m.
What began as a fun, side-project acoustic duo of Zach Myers (from Shinedown) and Chris Allen, eventually grew to add Zack Mack and J.R. Moore (from Ingram Hill). Ranging from folk/country to southern rock ’n roll, AMMM is a terrific Americana band, and has become notorious for great songwriting and passionate performances.

In the Beer Tent:
12 - 2 p.m. Krestfall
2:30 - 4:30 p.m. Travis Lee

ZZ-3

In the Beer Tent:
11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. Eminence
