It’s that time of year again! The Logan Square Arts Festival is back June 22 – 24. Check out local artisans, musical artists and your favorite Logan Square eats. This year marks the 10th Logan Square Arts Festival and will coincide with the 100th anniversary of the dedication of the Illinois Centennial Monument in the heart of Logan Square.
The festival celebrates the creativity, diversity and vitality of the neighborhood with live music on two stages, art installations, local artists, local beer from Revolution Brewing and crafted cocktails from The Whistler. The music lineup this year is diverse and sure to get you moving. Featured artists include !!! (pronounced Chk–Chk–Chk), an infectious dance-punk group; critically-acclaimed D.C. punk band Priests; local hip-hop producer and Chance the Rapper collaborator oddCouple; psychedelic dance-pop Ssion; and Detroit indie rock siblings Flint Eastwood.
“It’s our goal every year to present the most eclectic and acclaimed music lineup of any neighborhood festival in this city,” said Logan Square Arts Festival Executive Producer Geary Yonker. “We want to create something that is special, not just another ‘street festival’ but a special weekend filled with the sights, sounds, and people of our community. And this year’s festival is particularly special as it coincides with the hundredth anniversary of the Illinois Centennial Monument, the focal point of the festival and the neighborhood.”
A total of 25 bands are scheduled to perform so look out for the announcement on May 21 for the final lineup.
The festival is open Friday 5 p.m. – 10 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 12 p.m. – 10 p.m. There is a $5 suggested donation at the door, which will benefit Logan Square Preservation, an organization dedicated to educating citizens about architecture, history and beautification in Logan Square. More information and music lineups will come soon. In the meantime, check out photos from last year’s festival.
