Mile 7 Artist Announcement #5

Posted Jun 10, 2019
Blog

The roster for Mile 7, presented by Fox Communities Credit Union , has reached 200 with the latest addition of 30 performing acts who will grace the all-original music festival’s stages in and around Downtown Appleton, a grouping that includes such notable returning artists as Shadwick Wilde of Quiet Hollers, Twin Cities troubadour Michael Shynes, Valley-based faves Feed the Dog and former Lawrence University student artist B. Lilly while tapping fresh festival faces like Wisconsin native Beth White and Nashville duo 10 String Symphony.

The grouping adds 15 new acts and 15 returnees.

New Artists for Mile 7 (5th Announcement): 10 String Symphony (Nashville, TN), No No Yeah Okay (Milwaukee, WI), New Reveille (Raleigh, NC), Nick Anderson & The Skinny Lovers (Eau Claire, WI), Cory Williams (Austin, TX), Beth White (Nashville, TN/Lancaster, WI), Shadwick Wilde (Louisville, KY), Cave Paintings (Appleton, WI), Rooted Notion (Appleton, WI), Noah John & Ringing Iron (Wisconsin), Illiterate Light (Harrisonburg, VA), Driveway Thriftdwellers (Milwaukee, WI), Jake Schlegel (Indianapolis, IN), Saint Aubin (Indianapolis, IN), Bootleg Bessie (Milwaukee, WI)

Returning Artists for Mile 7 (5th Announcement): The High Divers (Charleston, SC), Kyle Megna & The Monsoons (Appleton, WI), Zach Vinson (Nashville, TN), Feed the Dog (Appleton, WI), B. Lilly (Chicago, IL), Ben Clark (New York, NY), David Paul Martin (Neenah, WI), Michael Shynes (Minneapolis, MN), Tyler & The Streeters (Appleton, WI), The Lately (Appleton, WI), Marty Paschke (Appleton, WI), Leading the Blind (Appleton, WI), Pudge (Appleton, WI), Jon Knudson (Milwaukee, WI), Faux Fawn (Madison, WI)

As the lineup has come together, the number of sets to be played at Mile 7 will remain consistent with the past couple of years – right around 950 – but the number of artists will increase slightly to about 220 as The Mile organizing team has opted to have a larger share of bands playing one, two or three sets during the weekend compared with past years when a greater number played as many as six or even seven sets over three or four days.

“It’s a way for us to continue focusing on better, not necessarily bigger,” said Dave Willems, whose Willems Marketing & Events produces Mile of Music. “The total amount of music remains the same but we are able to allow more artist in for fans to sample and discover.”

One last artist announcement will be made later in the month to finish out the Mile 7 roster.
