Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- It may still feel like winter in this spring we're in, but some folks will soon be looking forward to summer for more reasons that the weather. Some of the biggest and most famous artists were announced Wednesday as headliners at Summerfest 2018 in Milwaukee. 

Some of the big names include Kesha, Steven Tyler, Billy Currington, Nelly and Janelle Monae just to name a few. 

In total, more than 800 acts are expected to perform across many different musical genres. 

"We want people to come down and not just go to the amphitheater shows but to experience all the other music that's on the grounds and maybe they'll find something that they didn't like before they come down for a country show and they walk over and see a hip hop show or jazz show something that they're interested in," said Bob Babisch, the entertainment director for Summerfest. 

Tickets are already on sale for the 11 day music festival. 

Summerfest 2018 begins on June 27th at the Henry Festival Park in Milwaukee.
