The Great Lawn @ Chicago, IL
July 22 - July 23
On July 22nd and July 23rd, the UIC’s Harrison Field at the corner of Harrison & Halsted will transform from a college athletics field into a large-scale two-day music festival featuring some of America’s greatest genre-defying bands, with a breathtaking view of the Chicago skyline as the backdrop. The Saturday lineup (7/22) will begin at 3:30 and include performances from The Lil Smokies, Hard Working Americans, Shovels & Rope, and Houndmouth. Sunday’s (7/23) talented artist lineup will begin promptly at 2:00pm and feature sets from jam-grass up-and-comers, longtime vets, and modern-day masters, including Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, Joshua Davis Trio, Dr. Dog, and Greensky Bluegrass (who will deliver a full two-set headlining performance).
The new event is a collaborative effort by windy city brewery Goose Island Beer Company and “Chicago’s Finest Rock” station WXRT as well as promoters Silver Wrapper and Madison House Presents.
Tickets for the first ever edition of The Great Lawn in Chicago, IL go on sale this Friday at 10AM CT. For more information, please visit the festival website.
