Danny Wimmer Presents, the festival producers behind Welcome to Rockville and Epicenter Festival, are bringing the rock vibe to Chicago Open Air for two full days of face melting metal on Saturday May 18 and Sunday May 19.

In addition to enjoying two days of nonstop rock, attendees of Chicago Open Air Presents will be able to indulge in an array of food and beverage options. A variety of local and regional craft beers and delicious Chicago-centric cuisine will be available throughout the venue over the course of the weekend.
The daily band lineup (subject to change) is as follows:

Sunday, May 19: Tool, The Prodigy, Gojira, In This Moment, Fever 333, The Black Dahlia Murder, Alien Weaponry
I have to admit, my last handful of years have been consumed with mostly electronic music festivals… but seeing the kind of lineups that DWP is putting together, I am beyond excited to check these shows out! Hope to head bang with you Freaks this summer!
