Going into our fifth year, it’s been inspiring to see so many supporters share the same vision for making a music experience of this magnitude possible.

Mile of Music, presented by Tundraland, is set to welcome 225 artists to Downtown Appleton starting this Thursday, August 3, thanks to the support of more than 100 sponsors.
The free, four-day festival in Northeast Wisconsin – Mile 5 – will return with nearly 1,000 live performances at 70 venues after receiving tremendous support from both community and national sponsors. This support includes everything from in-kind donations and stage/merchandise partnerships to $100K in financial backing from Tundraland.
“We wouldn’t be able to put on a music festival of this size and scope without so many community-minded sponsors on board,” said Dave Willems, Mile of Music co-founder and marketing executive. “Going into our fifth year, it’s been inspiring to see so many supporters share the same vision for making a music experience of this magnitude possible.”
Among the list of 2017 sponsors, Tundraland has signed on as the festival’s presenting partner for the third consecutive year. In doing so, the organization continues to recognize how music and art can affect a community’s culture and has supported the festival as a way to make music accessible to everyone. Stone Arch Brewpub is back as the official craft beer partner of Mile of Music, offering its signature Americana Pale Ale. This year, Southern Comfort has also joined the list of supporters with its Southern Mule as the featured cocktail of Mile 5.
Willems explained that there are an incredible number of logistics that go into planning Mile of Music each year, and it wouldn’t be possible to pull off a feat this large without the sponsors who step in to fill the gaps.
