Chicago summer music festivals: Concert event calendar
Chicago is home to dozens of annual music festivals. Discover the best of Lollapalooza, Pitchfork, North Coast, Spring Awakening, Taste of Chicago and more.
With a major event every weekend, Chicago is the capital of summer music festivals. From Lollapalooza down to neighborhood rib fests, hundreds of acts grace our outdoor stages. Heck, we now host three EDM festivals alone—Electric Daisy Carnival, Wavefront and Spring Awakening. You can take in a free street party or splurge on a VIP experience and still catch the best bands going today. With our guide you can find out who is playing the Taste, and why the Taste of Randolph beats its big brother. So pick up some new festival clothing and hit the streets, parks and beaches.
