Time Out says

After taking a year off in 2018, Chicago's only summer music festival devoted to heavy metal and modern rock is returning for another weekend of scorching riffs and furious moshing at SeatGeek Stadium in Bridgeview, Illinois. For its third edition, Chicago Open Air will feature two days of music, including headlining sets from eclectic rockers System of a Down and prog-metal explorers Tool. Reunited British rockers the Cult, theatrical rock outfit Ghost and French metal act Gojira are among the other groups confirmed to perform at the reinvigorated fest.
