Metro Jam is excited to announce that 80’s video music icons The Producers will be headlining the festival this year on Saturday, June 17, 2023. The band is returning to Wisconsin, which they indicate has been one of their favorite areas to visit over the years, taking the stage in Washington Park at 8:30pm on Saturday, June 17th.  The Producers will bring their new wave/power pop hits including “She Sheila” and “What She Does To Me” plus many more to life at Metro Jam 2023!
