Summerfest has been gradually announcing its 2013 Marcus Amphitheater headliners for months now, but it’s stayed mum on side-stage acts. That changed today, when breaking from its usual tradition of announcing grounds stage performers in small chunks, the festival revealed the meat of its lineup in one massive drop. Comedian Lewis Black (who will be returning to the festival this year) revealed the headliners in a six-minute YouTube video, and at first glance, it’s a pretty inspired lineup, one that brings in many first-timers or relative strangers to the event in addition to the usual reliable draws. The (nearly complete) list of just announced headliners is below, along with Black's video message.
