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. Occuring the weekend before Pitchfork Music Festival, it's a great way to ease into the summer festival mindset without having to purchase a pricey wristband. This year, the Empty Bottle brings reunited punk-funk act ESG, Australian rockers Royal Headache and indie folk act Woods to the fest. The DJ stage features house music selectors Miles Maeda, Mark Farina and Derrick Carter.
