MILWAUKEE — The lineup for this year's rendition of Pridefest is out.
Pridefest organizer Milwaukee Pride Inc. released the list of musicians playing at "PridetoberFest," to be held Oct. 8 and 9 at Henry Maier Festival Park in Milwaukee.
Pridefest had to be canceled this summer over COVID-19 concerns. So Milwaukee Pride decided to come up with a version of the festival in the fall, when it is presumed more people will be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Musicians playing the festival include some big names, including Jaida Essence Hall, GGOOLLDD and Big Freedia.
Organizers said in July that PridetoberFest will be a scaled back version of the popular LGBT festival. It will cover the area from PrideFest's dance pavilion to Miller Stage. They hope to see 15,000 and 20,000 over the two-day festival.
Milwaukee Pride will be requiring either proof of a COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the event, just as Summerfest did.
