Milwaukee, WI (December 10, 2020) – Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. announced a new partnership with SilverIP to bring free public WIFI access to all fans at the American Family Insurance Amphitheater, starting in 2021.  SilverIP will provide high-speed access points throughout the venue, including concourses, seating bowl and bleacher/grass seating, in addition to hospitality areas.

“We are excited to offer free WIFI at the American Family Insurance Amphitheater to enhance our fans’ experience at this world-class venue,” said Don Smiley, President and CEO of Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. “We have partnered with SilverIP at Henry Maier Festival Park for many years, and it made perfect sense for us to provide that same service at the Amphitheater.  Free WIFI will be another new amenity to enjoy when we open this new venue in 2021.”

"We're thrilled to be working with the Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. team to provide free WIFI to the American Family Insurance Amphitheater.  Our experience providing internet service to Summerfest and large festivals in Chicago, makes this partnership a great fit,” said Farzad Moeinzadeh, SilverIP Co-Founder and CEO.

As part of this agreement, SilverIP will be named as the “Official Henry Maier Festival Park and Official Summerfest WIFI Provider” and will also continue to power the park’s internet connections.

Scheduled to debut in 2021, the new American Family Insurance Amphitheater will feature $51.3 million in upgrades, including 65 feet of clearance above the stage to allow for larger productions, 19 new dressing rooms, new food and beverage options, new VIP areas and amenities, expanded concourses, additional restrooms, and all new seats, as currently configured with the same capacity of 23,000.
