Befitting its location on the hip Chicago Avenue corridor, West Fest can be counted on for a great sleeper of a summer street fest bill. Empty Bottle programs the main stage, pulling together a lineup that typically includes a mix of indie and garage rockers. The 2017 lineup has yet to be announced, but it's certain to provide a fitting precursor to Pitchfork Music Festival the following weekend.
