Prepare for a busy November, music obsessives.
Red Bull Sound Select on Wednesday announced its overflowing "30 Days in Chicago" concert series, which will blanket the month of November with a robust roster of some 70 musical acts, including multiple leading indie-rock and hip-hop luminaries. It's the first time Red Bull has shifting its signature 30 Days festival from Los Angeles to Chicago—and we are duly thrilled with the get.
A different act is scheduled at various venues nearly every day of the month for the series. It looks akin to a mini, a la carte Lollapalooza, but with more quality control, spread mercifully across a full month. Among the big names are Young Thug (Nov. 1 at Metro), Mitski (November 7 at Lincoln Hall), Parquet Courts and Meat Wave (Nov. 15 at the Empty Bottle) and Migos and Lil Yachty (Nov. 30 at Riviera Theatre).
There are plenty of high-caliber local options, too, including appearances by Kweku Collins, Noname, Smino (with Ravyn Lenae), plus a Whitney-NE-Hi-Mt Joy triple threat and—perhaps most intriguing of all—a 10th anniversary party for the beloved hip-hop blog Fake Shore Drive.
Find more info here, and start clearing your calendar. Tickets (all of which are $15 or lower) go on sale September 6 at 10 a.m. Ticket purchase requires a sign up for Red Bull Sound Select, which is free. Check out the trailer and see the full list of shows below.
