Chicago's Rudio Fest has done a great job of bringing Latin rock acts to the city, but there's never been a summer festival devoted to reggaeton... until now. The teams behind Mexico's Baja Beach Fest and Lollapalooza are joining forces to present the first Sueños Music Festival, a two-day Memorial Day weekend fest that brings 20 Latin performers to Grant Park.
Taking place on a single stage in Grant Park's Hutchinson Field, Sueños will feature headlining sets from Colombian rapper J Balvin, Puerto Rican singer Ozuna and veteran reggaeton duo Wisin y Yandel. Other notable names on the lineup include rapper Myke Towers, Dominican hip-hop act El Alfa and Mexican-American quartet Fuerza Regida.
In addition to two days of music, organizers are promising food from some of Chicago best Latin restaurants, aftershows at local music venues, custom art installations and a Ferris wheel in the park that you can ride between (or during) sets. It's one of the largest new festivals to come to launch in Chicago in years and a fitting addition to a summer festival calendar that's likely to be more crowded than ever.
