It's also one of the best music FREE fests in Chicago since 1999 (way before Pfork, Lolla, DoD, Riot) featuring the same touring bands. 

Think energetic live indie/rock/pop/alt country shows (Orwells, Dale Earnhardt JrJr, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Jason Isbell, X Ambassadors, Wild Feathers, Features, J Roddy Walston, BRR, Jukebox the Ghost, HaHa Tonka, etc etc etc),
