What to expect at Woofstock

Written by

Now's your chance to have Fido or Spot featured in a Guinness World Record.

On Saturday, bring your furry friend to the Stadium Green at Soldier Field for Woofstock, a free music fest for both you and your pet that will aim to break the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of pets. (Yes, this is a thing). The current record, 4,616 pets, has held steady since 2007.

Presented by Animal Planet, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Paws Chicago, the fest also brings comedian Eugene Mirman, who hilariously voices Gene Belcher on Bob's Burgers.

As for the music, it'll also have you wagging your tail. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah headlines, sharing the stage with JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound and The Suffers.

Even everyone's favorite celebrity Internet cat, Lil Bub, will be there. 

Tickets are free, and the fest goes from noon to 5pm on Saturday.
