The first ever Chicago Open Air Festival was such a success that it's coming back for another year. Today the daily lineup for the 2017 festival was announced, and it features some big names in hard rock and metal music. Just a handful of acts that will perform include KISS, Rob Zombie, Korn, and Ozzy Osbourne.
The second annual Chicago Open Air Festival is set to happen July 14-16 in Bridgeview, Ill. at Toyota Park. It's right outside of Chicago, and the same location that the 2016 festival took place. Like last year, there will be two stages of music, gourmet man food, and over 40 bands on the bill.
Headlining the festival on Friday night will be KISS. Performing right before them on the main stage is going to be Rob Zombie. On Saturday, July 15 Korn will headline the main stage. Last year Korn was also a performer, but not a headliner. Closing out the festival on Sunday, July 16 is Ozzy Osbourne.
Tickets for the 2017 Chicago Open Air Festival go on sale Friday, Jan. 20 here. A single day ticket is $50, a weekend bowl level pass is $119.50, and a weekend field and bowl pass is $209.50. There's also going to be weekend VIP passes available to buy, which are $425 each.
At noon on Jan. 20 you can avoid service fees by purchasing tickets at the restaurant Kuma's Corner. Kuma's is known for serving up huge burgers that are named after metal bands.
