Jason Aldean will headline Summerfest on June 28 next year.

Summerfest names Jason Aldean as its first 2019 Amp headliner

Winter may be fast approaching, but that doesn't mean that we can't look forward to summer – and Summerfest, which today announced its first headlining act: country star Jason Aldean, who will hit the American Family Insurance Amphitheater on Friday, June 28 with special guest Kane Brown.

Aldean last came to Wisconsin last summer for Country Thunder, though he hasn't played Summerfest since 2013. Brown, however, has been a regular at the Big Gig, playing the U.S. Cellular Connection Stage in 2016 and 2018.

Aldean is one of the biggest names in country right now, only the second country act in the genre's history to place four consecutive chart-toppers on the all-genre Billboard 200 albums list, as well as scoring several country awards and Grammy nominations (four, mostly recently including a nod for Best Country Album in 2014 for "Night Train") with hit songs like "Drowns the Whiskey," "Lights Come On" and more.

Tickets for Jason Aldean and Kane Brown will go on sale starting Friday, Nov. 9 at noon on Ticketmaster and Summerfest's website. Tickets can also be bought in person at the Summerfest box office, Ticketmaster ticket centers and select Walmart stores, as well as by phone at (800) 745-3000 for a live Ticketmaster Agent or (866) 448-7849 for the "Ticketmaster Express" automated phone line.
