We took to the Summerfest grounds to photograph some of the different people who attended "The World's Largest Music Festival."

Hosting over 900,000 attendees, it’s no surprise that Summerfest is prime turf for people-watching. People from all walks of life come to Henry Maier Festival Park to enjoy live music, local food and summertime fun.

We took to the grounds to photograph some of the music fans, revelers and vendors who took part in “The World’s Largest Music Festival” this year.


HUMANS OF SUMMERFEST: Meet Jacob and Justus, both locals who have been coming to Summerfest for years. “I don’t know if [Summerfest] has changed as much as our perceptions have changed to certain things. Now there are some things we think are weird here, like what people are wearing or different things that we didn’t notice before when we were younger. I don’t know if that’s new or it’s always been that way,” Jacob said. “It’s an interesting mash of different cultures and people that maybe don’t come out for things [usually].” (photo by Maria Christianson) . . . #summerfest #humansofsummerfest #biggig #festival #milwaukee #mke #summerinthecity #summerfest17 #summerfest50 #summerfest2017 #peoplewatching
