Chicago is the birthplace of house music, so it stands to reason that the city hosts a festival celebrating the homegrown genre. The Chicago House Music Festival brings DJs and musicians to Millennium Park for a daylong dance party, showcasing the various genre styles that have developed since house was popularized in local nightclubs in the early ’80s. This year, London R&B, soul and house band Reel People makes its Chicago debut with a headlining set, joined by New York DJ Tony Humphries and local acts like Gene Hunt, Mark Grusane and First Lady. The festival will also host a conference at the Chicago Cultural Center on Thursday, May 23 and a performance in Millennium Park on Friday, May 24.
