The array of electronic, hip hop, funk and more will be held at Rosemont’s Donald E. Stephens Convention Center Friday, Dec. 30 and Saturday, Dec. 31. The DES Convention Center will become a warehouse fit to encapsulate a full new year’s worth of music and beautiful sights; it’s a wide open space of hopes and goals ready to come to fruition once and for all.
Friday’s headliner will be Australian sound engineering genius Flume, closing out a night featuring soul singer Anderson .Paak with his band, The Free Nationals, fashion beats extraordinaire Dillon Francis, Chicago’s own Noname and more. Saturday’s lineup is comprised of your favorite “Trap God” Gucci Mane, Chicago’s beloved live band and DJ composite of ‘90s dance Manic Focus and headliner Zeds Dead. Preview the entire lineup right here.
