Fittingly, the annual Chicago Blues Festival is the city's largest music festival, too. More than a half-million people flock to Chicago's "front yard" for free outdoor concerts in the park. This year, festival highlights include:
- 2015 GRAMMY® nominee Shemekia Copeland for a headlining show
- tribute performances honoring Otis Rush
- three stages with daytime concerts in downtown Grant Park (Bud Light Crossroads Stage, the Jackson Rhythm and Blues Stage, and the Front Porch)
