This year, California pop-rock trio HAIM, Motown R&B legends the Isley Brothers and Swedish electro-pop star Robyn headline the three-day festival. The notable names don't stop there: reunited avant-garde pop act Stereolab, resurgent rapper Pusha-T, psychedelic rockers Khruangbin and "I Love It" singer Charli XCX will also perform throughout the weekend.

There's also a slew of local talent on the bill, including gospel singer Mavis Staples (who turns 80 this summer) and the return of folk-rock act Whitney. Attendees will also be treated to sets from Chicago-based acts like Grapetooth, Valee, the Great Black Music Ensemble, Ric Wilson, Lala Lala, Dreezy and Tasha.
