Check this Chicago. A new music festival is coming to the area. Just a few miles outside of Chicago at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, IL, we’ll soon see the newest incarnation of a mash up fest. This one will be a three day fest that will focus on live music, gourmet food and craft beer. What else could you ask for!?
It’s being put on by the folks that brought you Rock on The Range and other well established festivals across the US. Here’s some good news about this one. It’s very reasonably priced (compared to others multi day festivals). It’s in a good centralized location away from downtown traffic and trendy uptight or dangerous neighborhoods. There’s plenty of parking. It’s all within one area. No tromping through mud or trekking across multiple park lands. It’s in June so the weather tends to be nicer. Not as hot as other summer festivals or wet. Best of all, its new! Something we’ve not seen before. This is the first of it’s kind so if you’re looking for a different festival this summer, you might want to put this on your list.
Here are more details:
Chicago Open Air has announced Rammstein as one of the headlining acts for the 3-day music, craft beer and Gourmet Man Food festival held July 15, 16 and 17 at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, IL, just outside Chicago. This marks Rammstein’s only 2016 U.S. performance and first Chicago show since 2012. Additional festival headliners will be announced on February 16.
Chicago Open Air will feature performances by over 40 bands, an outdoor Gourmet Man Food selection incorporating local and regional cuisine, a craft beer village highlighting top brews from the region, and other entertainment and fan experiences.
Discounted Early Bird General Admission 3-day weekend tickets are available for purchase now at www.ChicagoOpenAir.com. See below for more details.
Rammstein are known for their explosive and creative live performances with spectacular lighting. In the course of two decades, the German rock band have risen to the apex of the great rock pyramid, achieving album and DVD sales in the millions, headlining major festivals and bigger venues around the world (including New York’s Madison Square Garden, a show that sold out its 18,200 tickets in under 30 minutes!), and establishing themselves as peerless master showmen with an approach to their art – and ‘art’ is the word – that is dramatic, epic in scale and capable of touching all of the senses; a dark and spectacular fairy-tale laced with controversy and don’t-try-this-at-home theatrics.
“Rammstein is an act that is headlining major festivals all over the world,” says Chicago Open Air producer Danny Wimmer. “I’ve been trying to get Rammstein here for years and I couldn’t be more ecstatic to launch Chicago Open Air with them. If you’ve never seen Rammstein LIVE before, you are in for a real treat.”
