Time Out says

Chicago's multi-day summer festivals devoted to gospel, blues, house music and jazz aren't happening this year, but a new series of events is filling the void. As part of the citywide Chicago Tune In Festival (which includes a bunch of previously-planned festivals and concerts at local venues), the city is hosting four concert at Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park, with each night devoted to a different genre of music.

On September 3, you can catch performances from acts like LaShon Brown, Pastor Maceo and The Tommies Reunion Choir during a celebration of gospel music. The lineup on September 4 is presented with the Jazz Institute of Chicago, including sets from Ari Brown, Marquis Hill and Lizz Wright. House music takes the spotlight on September 11 with the debut of “Sanitize Your Soul,” a Gospel House Choir collaboration between Mark Hubbard and DJ Terry Hunter. And on September 18, you can celebrate the 50th Anniversary of local label Alligator Records with appearances by Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials, Nick Moss Band featuring Dennis Gruenling, Cash Box Kings, Shemekia Copeland, Billy Branch and Wayne Baker Brooks.

All of the concerts run from 5:30 to 8:30pm and are free to attend—no reservations required.
