  • In celebration of its 15th milestone season, Wicker Park Fest 2018 is expanding from two to three days! The street festival that Chicago Magazine and Chicago Tribune have called the “best” of the year returns July 27 – 29. Always one of the city’s most anticipated summer events, Wicker Park Fest attracts visitors from across the Midwest with its stellar music line-up and diverse selection of participants. Chicago’s longest (in terms of length) neighborhood festival reflects Wicker Park’s rich musical heritage, eclectic artistry and acclaimed dining scenes. Building on the area’s unique character, the weekend pays homage to the neighborhood with over 50 bands on four stages, area restaurants and over 120 merchant vendors, Kids Fest, Interactive Arts Exhibit, Sculpture Installation and three nights of live Fashion Shows. A $10 gate donation (which makes it the steal of summer event season) benefits the Wicker Park Bucktown Chamber of Commerce, a local non-profit specializing in small business assistance.

    Live Music: Above all, Wicker Park Fest is a music-first festival, attracting some of the summer’s most sought-after acts. Since the beginning, the iconic live music venue located in Wicker Park, Subterranean, has been a partner in curating the three stages. The full weekend lineup is as follows: North Stage; FRIDAY 9:00 - 10:00 Combo Chimbita 7:45 - 8:30 Dos Santos 6:30 - 7:15 Nikki Lynette SATURDAY 8:45 - 10:00 SIr The Baptist 7:30 - 8:30 Jonathan Toubin 6:00 - 7:00 Turqouise Jeep 4:45 - 5:30 Sidney Gish 3:30 - 4:15 DRAMA 2:15 - 3:00 Kaina 1:00 - 1:45 Bardo SUNDAY 8:45 - 10:00 Porches 7:15 - 8:15 Ezra Furman 6:00 - 6:45 Remo Drive 4:45 - 5:30 Mother Nature 3:30 - 4:15 Frances Cone 2:15 - 3:00 CJ Run 1:00 - 1:45 Dream Version South Stage; FRIDAY 8:30 - 10:00 Against Me! 7:15 - 8:00 The Brokedowns 6:00 - 6:45 Sincere Engineer 5:00 - 5:30 Typesetter SATURDAY 9:00 - 10:00 The Get Up Kids 7:45 - 8:30 Lemuria 6:30 - 7:15 Snail Mail 5:15 - 6:00 Rozwell Kid 4:00 - 4:45 Mykele Deville 3:00 - 3:30 Manwolves 1:00 - 2:30 School of Rock Oak Park SUNDAY 9:00 - 10:00 Red Fang 7:45 - 8:30 Windhand 6:30 - 7:15 Off With Their Heads 5:15 - 6:00 Spells 4:00 - 4:45 Slow Mass 3:00 - 3:30 Outrun The Sunlight 1:00 - 2:30 School of Rock Chicago Center Stage (Pachanga!
