Summerfest2 300x225 Summerfest Music FestivalSummerfest claims to be the world’s largest music festival, however for the numbers that it allegedly brings it doesn’t have a very heavy social media impact. Organizers claim that nearly 1 million people attend the massively long 11 day music festival. As their like counts and twitter follows indicate, many of those individuals in the ’1 million attendes’ are likely counted more than once.The actual daily attendance rate is more likely to be around 70,000+ per day, which is on the average side of ‘per-day’ attendance of many other music festivals. At those daily numbers, the massively long 2 week festival would around the 800,000 mark that Summerfest claims. Statistics aside, Summerfest is considered to be one of the best music festivals in the Northern United States.

S

ummerfest is held in the last week of June through the First week fo July, and is priced much differently than most festivals. Entry into the festival grounds are amazingly cheap, around $10-$30 depending on the day, however there is a catch. Unlike most music festivals which contain multiple stages once entry is made into the grounds, Summerfest requires tickets to enter into the various venues. Some of the tickets for the larger headlining acts sell for $60 or more, making this festival more like a massive 2 week concert spree. If you really only want to see a few artists, this might be a good thing depending on the festival goer, as you can purchase tickets to the specific artists you want to see. Assuming that number is fairly low, Summerfest could be pretty affordable and efficient for someone who just wants to see a couple artists, however the experience lacks the vibe of a more traditional festival where you have more freedom in seeing a large amounts of performances each day. In the end it boiles down to your personal preference.
