A lineup of local music is coming back to stages throughout The Brewery District in the first Equinox Festival, similar to the Vinterskol Musik Fest that occurred before the COVID-19 pandemic hit Milwaukee.
The celebration on Sept. 25 will showcase music, vendors, beer specials, tours and a variety of food options at several locations, including The Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery, Bottle House 42 and Nō Studios.
Nineteen Milwaukee musicians will perform, including Abby Jeanne, Immortal Girlfriend, Klassik, WebsterX and Zed Kenzo.
Different than the Vinterskol Music Fest, which was held in February 2020 and mostly indoors, the Equinox festival will host performers mostly outdoors throughout the district.
“Vintersköl Musik Fest in The Brewery District was a great event with amazing musicians and with the difficulties that our city has faced in the last year with so many events canceled, we wanted to celebrate Milwaukee musicians who were especially hit hard during the pandemic,” Erin Stenum, manager of The Brewery neighborhood district, said in a news release. “Equinox is giving attendees a way to support and enjoy the local music scene and Milwaukee’s ‘City of Festivals’ culture again.”
Attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the event. Masks and social distancing will be encouraged at indoor events.
Equinox will adhere to Milwaukee and Wisconsin health and safety guidelines, and event details are subject to change.
All-access tickets are on sale now for $25, but will be limited.
A VIP ticket package is available for $125, which includes drink tickets for each venue, light hors d’oeuvres, swag and access to a private VIP rooftop space and spectacular view of Milwaukee’s skyline and performances at Nō Studios.
