The event is attracting thousands of visitors and performers from all over the country. More than 40 venues including restaurants, bars and pubs are hosting the event.
Organizers say it brings a wide variety of music, and that Appleton community fits that kind of atmosphere.
"Downtown Appleton is already a town that's really vibrant and really energetic, this just raises it another notch, and it makes it a real nice destination for folks throughout Wisconsin. That's our goal, to put Appleton on the music map,” said Dave Willems, Mile of Music co-founder.
The festival runs through August 11th.
