Summerfest has filled the last major gap in its 2017 schedule. Today the festival announced that Paul Simon will headline the American Family Insurance Amphitheater on Friday, June 30, 2017, with opener Brandi Carlile. The 75-year-old folk legend has been pretty active lately. Last year he released a new album, the electronic-leaning Stranger to Stranger, and composed the music for Louis C.K.'s webseries Horace and Pete, and also guest starred as a bar patron. He'll also headline a night of Justin Vernon's Eaux Claires festival in Eau Claire this summer.
