Organizers of the Mile of Music will unveil the first 50 acts for this year's festival in one week.
Co-founder Dave Willems says they're holding their annual kickoff event next Thursday. One of the "First 50" artists will play.
Willems says they're also going to talk about a few new venues, along with some special projects that they're planning.
Willems says they're in the process of lining up more performers, and they hope to be able to announce another 50 in a couple of weeks.
The 5th Mile of Music will be in downtown Appleton from August 3-6.
