Chicago’s annual West Fest is hands down one of the city’s top 5 summer festivals. Located in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood, the fest runs along Chicago Ave on one of the city’s most up and coming strips. The fest will feature live music, local craft brew tents, local food vendors and local artisans providing crafts. Last year Flosstradamus shut it down earning themselves a festival ban for the remainder of the 2012 year, this lead to a rumor that no DJs would be allowed back for this years’; but that has since been proven false. With 3 stages, there will be plenty of music in the air and if it’s anything like last years’; West Fest will continue building it’s reputation as one of Chicago’s best summer festivals. Admission is free, but like always a $5 donation is much appreciated; be sure to make it out for this one, you wont be disappointed.
