Summer is the time for warmer weather, longer days and most importantly concert festivals! This season, us music enthusasists are certainly in for a treat with the newest festival, Chicago Open Air! For it’s debut year, it sure has a lineup to make you ready to pack your bags and venture to the windy city. With more than 40 bands/artists, an outdoor Gourmet Man Food and craft beer village and other entertainment from July 15 through July 17, 2016. This festival is something you shouldn’t miss. Just in case you needed further persuasion to join us in the art of head banging and circle pits, Rammstein will be headlining Friday night, with this being the band’s only 2016 U.S performance. Saturday will be headlined by Chicago’s own, Disturbed, who have returned from a 4-year hiatus. Last but certainly not least, Chicago Open Air might as well go out with a bang, and who better to do that then the global rock juggernauts in Slipknot!
