WEATHER

Weather can be tough here in Chicago, but the people of this fair city are tougher.   The festival will take place rain or shine and as all artists advertised have confirmed to play, sometimes the weather does not allow them to travel to Chicago.  In this instance, acts are subject to change without notice so it’s best to visit the website for the most up-to-date info.
