Petrillo Music Shell Lineup

Headlining Performers

Headlining the evening are the KONGOS, a diverse and multi- talented quartet of brothers hailing from South Africa. With their 2014 hit "Come With Me Now" the groups popularity took off in the U.S. In June, the band will release their new album Egomaniac, and "Take it From Me," the first single was released on April 15.

Elle King will bring her hits, "America's Sweetheart" and "Ex's & Oh's" from her 2015 debut album, LOVE STUFF to fans at the Petrillo stage. The album was a follow up to the acclaimed The Elle King EP (2012), which included the single "Playing For Keeps." The single became the theme song for VH1's "Mob Wives Chicago" and was picked for a national ad campaign for "Mad Men."

Transviolet, led by Sarah McTaggert's sultry vocals, will open the evening's performances. This band on the rise released their four-song EP in September 2015, and will be releasing an album soon. The first single from the EP "Girls Your Age" gained instant online traction, becoming a viral sensation. Another hit song for the group is "New Bohemia."
