rsz_wpfest.jpg It's almost festival season and we're getting anxious to get back into the swing of All Things Summer. There were some good times at Wicker Park Fest 2010, so expect to see more of the same at the festival this year. The lineup at Wicker Park Fest 2011 so far includes Wild Flag, Wavves, Ana Sia, Joe Pug, Flosstradamus, California Wives, and Blitzen Trapper. If anything, surf pop favorite Wavves will probably draw a nice crowd, and the same for all-girl awesome band Wild Flag. The festival also continues its tradition of bringing in solid DJ acts in addition to bands.

Around 52,000 people attended Wicker Park Fest last year, and we expect the festival to be a big hit this year, too. We are hoping that more acts are added to the lineup as we eagerly await festival season here at the Chicagoist offices.

Wicker Park Fest 2011 will be held from noon to 10 p.m during the weekend of July 23 and July 24. The festival will be held at its usual location - on the stretch of Milwaukee Avenue Between Wood and North Avenue. Suggested donation is $5.
