Red Bull Sound Select brings some heavy names for their “30 Days In Chicago.”
Red Bull has successfully managed to expand their brand from an energy drink into music, film, arts and culture. Their Red Bull Sound Select showcases have expanded into a bunch of different cities and provides intimate and affordable experiences. Now they’ve announced they will be debuting their “Red Bull Sound Select Presents: 30 Days in Chicago” with a new concert everyday of the month.
Their line-up this year includes some pretty solid names attached to it. They will be kicking off the first night of the festival with Young Thug and two days later, will have Kehlani and Kodie Shane and the day after that Tee Grizzley will be performing for Fake Shore Drive’s 10th anniversary. The line-up continues to be just as enticing throughout the whole month. Included in the line up is Khalid, Smino, Syd, 6lack and Daniel Caesar among many others. Red Bull Sound Select has gotten Migos and Lil Yachty to close out the festival on November 30th. While the line-up already seems stacked, they will be announcing more performers in the coming weeks. So far the only two dates without shows are Nov. 13, which will be announced, and Thanksgiving on the 23rd.
The whole month of November will be lit in Chicago, they’ve curated an excellent blend of electronic, hip hop, indie rock and everything in between. Red Bull Sound Select is a platform to highlight up-and-coming talent. On their website, it says that 30 Days In Chicago is a month-long festival in artist discovery “celebrating Chicago and the music scene that makes it happen.”
Tickets for their upcoming showcase will be available through signing up for Red Bull Sound Select which is free, however each show will be priced for $15 or less before taxes and fees.
They’ve also announced that they will be hosting a “3 Days in Philly” similar to their Chicago showcases. The festival will include some of the same performers that’ll be playing in Chicago such as Noname, Syd and Ravyn Lenae.
