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….
The Chicago Jazz Festival hits Millenium Park & The Chicago Cultural Center Sept. 2nd- the 5th. This is a gleeful shoutout to all jazz enthusiasts, not to mention the concerts are free. Pack your camera and book your room with us.
If anyone is interested in breaking a sweet sweat this September, check out Chicago’s 14th Annual Half Marathon. This is going down Sept. 12th at Jackson Park, check the link for further details- this event is known to sell out quick.
