18-year-old Harrisburg, PA pop artist Madison Ryan won the Emerging Artist Contest of the Day after her recent appearance at Milwaukee's SummerFest.
Now in its 12th year, the Emerging Artist series has highlighted up-and-coming local, national and international talent during daily performances that not only showcase great live music, but also engage the audience by having fans vote each day in a Twitter poll for their favorite performance. Every day of the Series, the band with the most fan votes receives an "Emerging Artist Series Care Package" that includes nearly $3,000 in gear, merchandise and services. Additionally, two lucky artists walk away with a College & Non-Commercial Radio
Campaign from Planetary Group. Some artists featured in past series have gone on to become nationally and internationally known, including Walk the Moon, Nathaniel
Rateliff, Maren Morris, BØRNS, X Ambassadors, The Record Company, and many more.
Ryan says, "Playing SummerFest this year was one of the best experiences of my whole life. It was truly a show that I will never forget. The energy of the festival was so intense and exciting. I was thrilled to be a part of the Emerging Artists series and to win the Emerging Artist contest of the day was just the cherry on top to such a fun and amazing time. I cannot wait to go back to Milwaukee."
