Pitchfork may be the summer music festival to beat in July, but Wicker Park Fest always holds its own. As usual, the neighborhood street fest brings indie rockers, hip-hop acts and electronic performers to Milwaukee Avenue (not to mention some aftershows at Chicago music venues).

On Saturday, legendary Ohio indie rock act Guided By Voices gets top billing, followed by Minneapolis hip-hop collective Doomtree and jazz fusion duo the Mattson 2. On Sunday, reunited alt-rockers Piebald and rootsy singer Pokey LaFarge headline a lineup that includes psych-rockers Jeff the Brotherhood and Chicago rapper Malcolm London.

A $10 donation during each day of Wicker Park Fest will allow you to see all of these artists. At that price, it's one of the best bargains you'll find among the vast slate of things to do this summer in Chicago. Take a look at the full Wicker Park Fest schedule below.
