What I look forward to at the end of the school year are all the summer concerts Chicago has to offer. Here are some exciting concerts and music festivals I’m especially excited for.
Millenium Park Summer Music Series
Free music outdoors is one of the best ways to enjoy summer. Millenium Park always hosts many things in the summer along with movies, festivals and concerts. I’m looking forward to enjoying the series this summer especially for a performance by the Bahamas in August.
This is a popular music festival during the first week of August in Chicago as everyone knows, and although I’ve never been there are a lot of great artists coming this summer such as Bruno Mars, Khalid, Post Malone, Tyler the Creator and many more. I usually avoid Lolla because of the long days and large crowds. I will probably go eventually, but if you want more intimate concerts with the festival artists, I suggest buying aftershow tickets which are cheaper and in my opinion, more worth it.
Summerfest is an 11-day music festival in Milwaukee during the end of June and beginning of July. It’s an easy drive up to Milwaukee from Chicago and the festival is very affordable and has some great headliners this summer, such as the Weeknd, Florida Georgia Line, James Taylor, Halsey and many more artists.
Northcoast is another music festival that takes place in Union Park at the end of August and beginning of September over Labor Day weekend. I’ve never really considered going to North Coast but with the lineup this Summer I’m most likely going to go because Miguel is headlining one of the days.
