Belmont-Sheffield Music Festival
Celebrate the beginning of summer in the city at the 37th annual Belmont-Sheffield Music Festival, on Sheffield Avenue between Roscoe and Belmont, May 28-29 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Just before Memorial Day, the Belmont-Sheffield Music Festival kicks off Chicago’s iconic summer festival season with a weekend packed full of local and national talent. A suggested $10 donation upon entry benefits the Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce.
Steps away from the red line “EL” train’s Belmont stop, the festival takes over the heart of the popular Lakeview East neighborhood. The main stage, located on Sheffield near Roscoe, features popular local tribute bands like Rod Tuffcurls & the Bench Press and Trippin’ Billies. The second stage, at Belmont and Sheffield, features an eclectic mix of everything from deejay sets and cover bands to aikido demonstrations by the Japanese Culture Center and a drag revue hosted by Berlin Night Club.
