For the first time on Wednesday, June 24th, there will be a new annual festival held in Chicago, and it’s completely free. ‘Teens in the Park’ will be open to those aged 13-24, and hosted by none other than Chicago native himself, Chance The Rapper.
“The city-sponsored event, which will feature performances from Chance’s Surf collaborator Donnie Trumpet, Chicago emcee DLow, and more to be announced, is open only to Chicago youth aged 13-24, although adults can attend if accompanying teens. Other draws include breakdancing, jewelry-making, and graffiti art, courtesy of organisations including Donda’s House, the non-profit established in memory of Kanye West’s late mother.”
The first festival will be held from 4:30-7:30 pm and those interested can register through Live Nation.
