The First 50 Artists of Mile 9 are Here!

Posted Apr 26, 2022

Organizers of Mile of Music announced Tuesday they anticipate record-breaking attendance this summer when the four-day celebration of singer-songwriters and bands who play original music is staged for the ninth time at 40 venues on the one-mile stretch of Downtown Appleton. Officials confirmed the festival will be held the first full weekend of August, with music beginning Thursday, August 4 and continuing through Sunday, August 7.

At an open house announcement event marking 100 days before the Festival’s first day on August 4, The Mile Team, as has become tradition with the launch announcement, also introduced music fans to the “First 50” artists set to play the event. The initial group of artists includes original indie and roots acts from 17 states, with 15 hailing from Nashville and seven from New York state. It features artists from Canada and, for the first time, an artist from overseas – The Black Feathers, a husband-and-wife duo from the UK.

The majority of artists coming to Downtown Appleton and the Fox Cities this summer will be announced over the next 4-6 weeks, with nearly 200 original performers set to be included in this year’s event. About 40% of the lineup will be performers from Wisconsin, including local Fox Cities originals. Mile of Music is one of the few large music festivals that strictly spotlights lesser-known singer-songwriters and bands or, as organizers label them, “indie artists who aren’t household names but should be.”

  • Linda says:

    Bring back “Remember Jones” from NJ

  • Karen Brake says:

    Please bring back Joe Hertler & the Rainbow Seekers. They were the best band of the festival last year in my opinion!

    • Mile of Music Festival says:

      We’re glad you love them, Karen! Stay tuned for future announcements. 🙂

  • Mary says:

    What time does this start everyday? Aug 4th – Aug 7th

    • Mile of Music Festival says:

      Hi Mary! We are finalizing our stage times for this year, but most of our music will be from 11am-11pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Sunday is still packed with music, but we wrap up a little bit earlier (usually around 7).

  • Jen says:

    Bring some lasers and/or better production to these stages.

    • Mile of Music Festival says:

      Thank you for the suggestion! We are very grateful for our production partners.

  • Jessie owens says:

    87 Nights is balls out phenomenal

    • Mile of Music Festival says:

      Can’t say we’ve ever heard this description before! Haha, but we are excited to have them back. 🙂

  • Tim K says:

    Relayer, Lemon Sky, The Crane Wives

  • Pat McGee says:

    How about bringing Chicago based band The Dead Bolts to mile of music? These dudes rock! https://youtu.be/7dDqDrU9GH4

  • Jerome F Smith says:

    Have seen Will Kimbrough in Key West during Meeting of the Mind . He is fantastic. Well noted in the music world. Wish you could have Marshall Chapman with him.

  • Casey says:

    Is Yam Haus coming back to the mile this year?

    • Mile of Music Festival says:

      Hey Casey! Thanks for reaching out. Yam Haus won’t be at Mile 9 this year. (Trust us, we’d love to have everyone back!) We appreciate and understand the fact that artists who have played at the festival have built a fan base here in our region and attendees would like to see more of that artist. It’s a humbling feeling to realize that the 1,000 artists who have played Mile of Music to date want to return, and their fans want them to return. We strive to bring artists who you don’t know but should, while mixing Mile alumni into the lineup as well. It’s great for us to know you like Yam Haus so we can keep them in mind for future festivals and other events, too.
