Headlining Performers

Passion Pit is an American indie electronica band from Cambridge, Massachusetts, formed in 2007. The band consists solely of Michael Angelakoson on lead vocals and keyboards, joined live by Chris Hartz on drums, Aaron Harrison Folb on bass and synthesizers, Giuliano Pizzulo on guitar and synthesizers and Ray Suen on guitar and synthesizers. Recent releases include Kindred with the hit single "Lifted Up (1985)" and a 2016 Christmas Album featuring the single "Stained Glass Windows" from Merry Christmas, Mr. Fields.

The Kickback immediately enters the front ranks of contemporary rock-n-roll with the 2017 release of Weddings & Funerals from Jullian Records. The album is a furious, exhilarating and deeply emotional collection from the Chicago based band with lead singer Billy Yost, guitarist Jonny Ifergan, and bassist Daniel Leu. In 2016, the band performed at Taste of Chicago on the Bud Light Stage.
