Radio Summer Camp is the inaugural 4-day music festival held by WMSE 91.7FM in Milwaukee, Wisconsin featuring a mixture of great national touring artists mixed with the best Milwaukee has to offer.

WMSE has reserved slots for two Sonicbids bands:

  • A band with a handle on American/Roots/Alt-Country sound to be the opening act for Bill Kirchen and Joe Pug at Shank Hall (Saturday, August 22)
  • A real rocker. This second band should be loud in a post-punk leaning metal fashion.

    Each of the two selected bands will receive $300 and a full meal/drinks on the night of the performance. Some confirmed bands one the national level are Justin Townes Earle, Joe Pug, Catfish Haven, Common Loon, the Wood Brothers and Frontier Folk Nebraska.

    Both selected bands will also have the opportunity to play live in-studio at WMSE and receive a professionally recorded CD and Video of the session. Selected bands will be a part of a massive promotional effort that includes web, email, social network, print, brochure and poster/flier/postcard formats along with targeting local and national music blogs. The bands will also receive repeated on-air mentions.

    WMSE will kick off Radio Summer Camp with a show at Turner Hall Ballroom on August 20, then six Milwaukee club venues will simultaneously host night time shows consisting of national and local artists on August 21 and 22. Also, on August 22, from 12-8 pm, the grounds of Cathedral Square will host a performance of national and local music talent called The Backyard BBQ. Americana (country, folk, bluegrass, etc.) music and culture will be the ambiance for this event.
