Chicago music festival season just got an unexpected addition to the lineup. 

This Saturday, dynamic DJ duo Sock & Buskin will liven up the otherwise drab CTA commute by transforming a Brown Line train into rave venue with a live, five-hour set.

Hosted by Chicago-based event company Redline, the train rave, known as Redline Express, will take over six CTA cars from 7pm to 11pm on June 15. In collaboration with battery-powered sound system company SOUNDBOKS, the DJs will play their mixes through 10 SOUNDBOKS speakers throughout the train.

Sock & Buskin, often seen performing “walk-up” DJ sets in the streets of Chicago, will load their equipment on at the Kimball station and invite attendees to groove all the way to the Loop, where they'll stop at the Washington and Wells station. The train will then make a few laps around the Loop, allowing passengers to step off for breaks, before returning to Kimball.

The event, sponsored by Red Bull and SKAA, is committed to creating an unforgettable experience that is reflective of Chicago’s vibrant and global music scene. 

The transpo-rave is split into two halves, with departures from Kimball at 7pm and 9:20pm. Remaining tickets, available here, are $75 per person and includes access to the entire experience. Attendees can check in and board the trains 40 minutes before departure.
