I was away for a long weekend, so I'm late to respond to this news article, but according to a Journal Sentinel report, Summerfest's attendence was down this year. Way down. Lowest levels since 1993 down.

The report cites the skittish economy and inopportune weather as likely causes, but doesn't mention what I've heard a lot of people say about this year's festival: The line-up wasn't all that great. That common complaint isn't one I completely agree with (I actually thought the line-up was pretty good by Summerfest standards this year, save for my usual complaint about the lack of hip-hop), but surely a few more exciting additions in next year's schedule wouldn't hurt. Summerfest needs its C.C. Sabbathia.


Poll

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?

Getting poll results. Please wait...
