The 6th annual Lyrical Lemonade Summer Smash

One of the biggest rap festivals in the U.S. will take place next weekend in our hometown, Chicago. With some of the biggest names in the industry performing in the past, like A$AP Rocky, Lil Uzi Vert, Post Malone, and many more, this year's lineup is one of the most exciting yet. With Playboi Carti headlining on Saturday, Travis Scott and Cactus Jack on Friday, and a special homecoming by Chicago's own Chief Keef after a 9-year hiatus, this is one of the most exciting events of the year that you don't want to miss. This year, it's taking place at Seat Geek Stadium in Bridgeview, just 20 minutes from downtown Chicago. With many activations and areas to explore, such as a partnership with the Minions, McDonald's, and many more. The festival grounds this year will come with a video set village with recreations of some of rap's most iconic sets like Juice Wrld's "Lucid Dreams" set and "All is Yellow".

This year's performances include artists like Kodak Black, Ski Mask the Slump God, Lil Yachty, Big Sean, and That Mexican OT.

With great weather this weekend, in the mid 80's and clear skies, be sure to grab a 3-day or single-day ticket from the official summer smash website!

I'll add the links below and a detailed schedule with maps! Be sure to catch UIC Radio's own reporters, Diana and Brenda, at the fest!
