Chance the Rapper Unveils Countdown For Chicago Festival Tickets

News arrived on Monday morning that Chance the Rapper’s previously teased mid-September appearance in Chicago will be Sept. 24—and it will also be a guest-packed "festival" affair.

Now it appears that tickets will be on sale at 5 p.m. Monday. Chance tweeted a link to his website that now features a countdown, which presumably will signal that tickets are on sale once it expires. (The website doesn’t explicitly detail, but Chance tweeted last week that Chicago tickets would go on sale today.)

The event, called the "Magnificent Coloring Day" in reference to his most recent mixtape, will also feature Skrillex, John Legend, Alicia Keys, Lil Wayne, Tyler the Creator, 2 Chainz, Young Thug, Lil Uzi Vert, and more to-be-announced acts.

Magnificent Coloring Day will take place at US Cellular Field, which should make the grumps at the Tribune Editorial Board happy.
