Tickets for Taste of Chicago's music concerts and the Pure Leaf Celebrity Chef du Jour series are now on sale. Admission to the annual celebration of local gluttony is still free but if you want to have a seat to see Janelle Monae or Aloe Blacc at Petrillo bandshell you'll need to buy a ticket.

We've already talked about the loaded music lineup for this year's Taste. Tickets for bandshell seating and designated lawn seating start at $18.

The celebrity chef du jour dinners will feature Art Smith, Paul Virant, Nico Osteria's Erling Wu-Bower, Amanda Rockman and Matthias Merges with a special edition of "The Dinner Party" featuring Sepia's Andrew Zimmerman. Tickets to those dinners start at $45.

You can buy tickets through Ticketweb at Taste of Chicago's website
