Milwaukee, Wisconsin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (3067 words)
Milwaukee is the largest city in the state of Wisconsin, United States and the county of Milwaukee.

Milwaukee was home to a vibrant rave scene in the early Nineties, especially fostering hardcore techno, thanks to Drop Bass; but the scene moved south to Chicago after reaction by city authorities.
