The Red Bull Music Festival has editions in New York, Atlanta, Montreal, Paris, Berlin and Istanbul, and now the event is expanding to Chicago. The inaugural Red Bull Music Festival Chicago, will take place Nov. 3-30 at different venues in the city.
Perhaps the most high-profile show at the Chicago festival is the Nov. 3 concert showcasing artists on Kanye West's G.O.O.D. music label at Wintrust Arena. Nas, Pusha T, Desiigner, Teyana Taylor, Valee, Sheck Wes and 070 Shake are all on the bill. Although West has not been announced as a performer, he will probably be there, since he's a Chicago native and the owner of the G.O.O.D. label. Expect other "surprise" guests at the show.
Saffron Rails, one of the festival's main venues, will host shows by Vic Mensa on Nov. 8 and the Latin music festival Xicago on Nov. 11. There is also a performance by rapper Cupcakke on Nov. 10 at Thalia Hall.
Red Bull Radio Live: Peak Time, featuring various DJs, will take place Nov. 5 at Smartbar, Nov. 12 at Young Chicago Authors and Nov. 26 at Lincoln Hall. The festival will include a Q&A with influential hip-hop producer No I.D. on Nov. 20 at the Chicago History Museum. The festival closes out with a Jamila Woods performance on Nov. 30 at Harold Washington Cultural Center.
