This year’s Summerfest celebration is highlighted by an appearance from Manchester Orchestra, an Atlanta quintet that tends to eschew detail work in favor of sheer, momentous volume. Other standouts include My Morning Jacket/Hacienda/Grupo Fantasma spin-off Spanish Gold, pop-worshipping Canadian rockers Tokyo Police Club and Sleeper Agent, a Kentucky-based alt-rock crew that bounds into its sophomore album About Last Night as though it’s in the midst of an epic sugar-high.
Other performers include OK Go, The Whigs, Vance Joy, Big Data, The Ooh-La-Las and DJ Lance and Mister Shifter. A host of food trucks, including Paddy Wagon, Mojo Tago, Street Thyme, Tatoheads and Shark Shack Donuts will also be on the grounds serving up eats beginning at 5 p.m.
