California harmony pioneers The Beach Boys were announced this week as the Marcus Amphitheater headliner on July 1 at Summerfest, Milwaukee's major music festival.
They are releasing a new original studio album this year and touring with all the original surviving members, but are 24 years removed from being inducted into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame.
Another older headliner is 71-year-old Neil Diamond, who was just inducted into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame last year. They join two country music standouts, the Zac Brown Band and Lady Antebellum, as the headliners announced so far. Lady Antebellum won the 2012 Grammy for Country Album of the Year.
What do you think of the headliners so far? Too old? Too country? Smart marketing choices? Exactly the right fit for Milwaukee?
And who is missing? There are six nights still to be announced. Tell us in the comments which bands you believe should headline the World's Largest Music Festival.
