Earlier this year, the outdoor portion of The Salt Shed—a new entertainment complex housed at the site of the Morton Salt building—made its debut with a lineup of summer concerts, featuring acts like Andrew Bird, Mt. Joy and Death Cab for Cutie in an open air venue along the Chicago River.

If you didn’t get a chance to catch a show before the brief outdoor season concluded, it’s time to turn your attention to The Salt Shed’s next phase, an indoor venue called The Shed. The long-awaited indoor space features multi-level grandstand seating (including VIP balcony opera boxes) and an L-Acoustics sound system, according to a news release, and will eventually offer food and beverage options along with a schedule of indoor markets and other cultural events. 

The venue’s initial lineup kicks off on February 17 with a performance from Scandi-pop artist Tove Lo and “Mine” singer Slayyyter. Other notable shows this season include a performance from punk icon Iggy Pop (March 10), the first Bikini Kill appearance in Chicago since the group reunited in 2019 (April 22) and the Flaming Lips celebrating the 20th anniversary of Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots (May 5). More concerts are expected to be announced in the coming months. 

Tickets for the indoor shows go on sale Friday, November 18 at 10am on the venue’s website. Take a look at the full list of performers announced so far below.
