Befitting its location on the hip Chicago Avenue corridor, West Fest can be counted on for a great sleeper of a summer street fest bill. Empty Bottle books the main stage, bringing bands like Dead Moon, Nobunny and Swirlies, while local house folks spin on the DJ stage. If you can stomach yet another summer street festival, it's the perfect lead-in to the Pitchfork Music Festival the following weekend.
