Concerts in Chicago in August 2020

Lollapalooza, Jeff Tweedy, Queen and more of the best concerts in Chicago to see during August

By Zach Long

As usual, August begins with a barrage of music at Lollapalooza, where Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino, the Strokes and Twenty One Pilots are slated to headline the four-day Chicago summer music festival. Once the masses clear out of Grant Park, there's still plenty to look forward to this month, including a lakefront performance from Herbie Hancock and Kamasi Washington, a headlining set from local rapper Polo G at the Vic Theatre and Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy playing a golf course in Evanston. Plus, some of your old favorites are back, including Queen (with Adam Lambert handling vocals), the Backstreet Boys and the Smashing Pumpkins. Enjoy the last full month of summer in Chicago at some of the best concerts in Chicago in August.
