Taking place on Milwaukee Avenue in a six-block stretch between Damen and Paulina Avenues, Wicker Park Fest has held strong booking solid musicians throughout the weekend from national touring acts to local up-and-comers.

The festival initially announced headliners including indie favorites Guided by Voices, emo veterans Piebald, hip-hop collective Doomtree, and others. Added to the lineup are more than a handful of acts that will make the entire weekend filled with diverse and stellar music.


Local standouts include hip-hop poet Malcolm London, surf-garage rockers Bleach Party, the Chicago Funk Mafia, post-punk trio No Men, and the impossible to pin down Nnamdi Ogbonnaya. Full lineup for the weekend for all three stages is posted below.

While the music lineup is one of the main attractions, there is plenty else to do along Milwaukee Ave for the weekend as well. On Saturday at 1 p.m., a sculpture installation by Christina Murphy will be unveiled, titled “Life’s a Balance.” There will also be oversized versions of Battleship, Pool, and other games. The festival keeps things family friendly with Kids Fest, offering face painting, karate lessons, science experiments and more.

Lagunitas Brewing is one of the sponsors, although no other food or drink vendors have been released as of yet.

All of this takes place Saturday July 29th and Sunday July 30th. The festival asks for a $10 donation which goes to supporting the Wicker Park Bucktown Chamber of Commerce, and all tickets sales from the Kids Fest area go to supporting Burr Elementary School.
