A star-studded 2014 lineup is in store for Milwaukee's annual multi-week celebration known as Summerfest. GRAMMY winner Bruno Mars will be on hand on June 25 for the very first day of performances, along with special guest, Aloe Blacc. This particular concert will take place at the spacious Marcus Amphitheater on the Summerfest grounds.
Marcus Amphitheater Seating Information
The arrangement of Marcus Amphitheater may vary for each headliner, so be sure to check out the seating map for Bruno Mars to get an idea of the layout for his June 25 performance. For the most part, the venue will maintain its traditional sections of seating, which include Front Reserved, Rear Reserved, Bleachers, and the general admission lawn. Some artists may also offer a general pit area, which is typically situated directly in front of the stage and will be marked as such on the Marcus Amphitheater seating chart. Accessible seating is generally available by request, though guests are encouraged to make such arrangements in advance to ensure a smooth concert experience.
