The architecturally-stunning Millennium Park is the hippest place to be in Chicago on Monday and Thursday nights. Millennium Park Summer Music Series, the FREE weekly music series, is a showcase for a wider variety of genre-defying music. The series (formerly Downtown Sound and Made in Chicago) has been reimagined to feature a wider variety of genre-defying music - both established and emerging.

Grab a seat at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion or spread out on the Great Lawn for outdoor concert performances from local, national and international acts every Monday and Thursday evening June 12 - August 21, 2017 (except where noted) at 6:30pm.

Please note that bringing your own alcohol to this event is banned in 2018.
