Here’s a few reasons why you should book your stay with Chicago Getaway Hostel for February, March, April, and May or just about every day…
Here at the hostel we’re psyched about the TNK Festival coming to Chicago January 12-16th at Lincoln Hall, Metro, and Schubas. A 5 day pass is $100 and includes an opening night reception, free cocktails, trolley travel between the venues, and a chance to meet some Chicago rock critics. Otherwise, the shows are $15 a piece.
Coming to our beloved city in the winter season? Don’t mind some cold temps, there is a beautiful side of Chicago to explore this season:
No, that building is not erupting in festive flames, this is just a small part of The Magnificent Mile Lights Festival. This event has been going on for over 40 years along the acclaimed Michigan Ave. and once again lights up on Nov. 20th. The light procession begins at 5:30pm, and the fireworks start at 7pm along North Michigan Ave and the Chicago River.
Who says you can’t have winter fun in Chicago? From ice skating, concerts, sledding, a frosted skyline, drinks, Zoolights, Bulls games, The SkyDeck, Navy Pier- there’s a bunch of Holiday fun to have in Chicago.
Achtung punk rock enthusiasts! The annual Riot Fest concert series will bestow its snarling, three-chord, beer-swilling, band-filled, moshing, crowd-surfing, glory upon our city once again. If you need cheap accommodations, grab your favorite band shirt & book a room with us ASAP. The fest packs another stellar lineup of rock-n-roll: Bad Religion, The Lawrence Arms, Agnostic Front, The Bouncing Souls, Cobra Skulls, and The Circle Jerks are just a fraction of the massive lineup.
Chicago is becoming big music fest central. We know you’ve heard of Pitchfork and Lallapalooza, but we’d like to introduce you to a new concert series, NorthCoast Music Festival. This is a celebratory concoction of hip hop, electronic, dance and indy music occuring at Union Park Labor Day Weekend, which is just a quick train ride from our hostel. Check this fest out, musicians like De La Soul, Chemical Brothers, Lupe Fiasco, Moby, and Nas will be performing and you have the option of purchasing a 1 day pass for $35 or a 3 day pass for $75. Just because summer ends in September, doesn’t mean Chicago events cease as well….
