Ghost, System of a Down, and the Prodigy are just some of the bands who will make their way to Chicago in the springtime for the 2019 incarnation of Chicago Open Air. On Tuesday (Dec. 11), U.S. music festival producer Danny Wimmer Presents unleashed the full lineup for next year’s event following its one-year hiatus.
In addition to the aforementioned bands, Tool, Meshuggah, Beartooth, Code Orange, Knocked Loose, Vein, Gojira, In this Moment, Fever 333, The Black Dahlia Murder, and Alien Weaponry will round out the roster for next year’s event. Unlike the other Danny Wimmer Presents music festivals, which boost a large array of performers throughout the day, Chicago Open Air will only have seven bands performing a day.
“I can’t even begin to express how excited we are to be playing Chicago Open Air Presents. We had such a blast last time!” In this Moment frontwoman Maria Brink said in a press statement.
“Tool, the Prodigy, and System of a Down. That’s insane and such a powerful lineup. We feel blessed to be a part of it all. These are some of our all-time favorite bands, I can’t wait to see you all there with In this Moment.”
In addition to the rocking lineup, attendees will also be able to indulge in a variety of local and regional craft beers and delicious Chicago-centric cuisine during the weekend-long festivities.
Chicago Open Air will take over the SeatGeek Stadium (formerly Toyota Park) in Bridgeview, Illinois during the weekend of May 18 – 19. Doors for the two-day event will open at 2 p.m. each day.
Tickets for the music festival will go on sale beginning this Friday, Dec. 14, at noon CT on Chicago Open Air’s website.
The festival will offer several package for attendees to choose from including several single-day and two-day packages.
