2016 must be the year for Music Festivals, huh?
Joining the very long list of festivals happening this spring and summer is the Chicago Open Air Festival. The festival was just announced and will be happening from July 15 through the 17th in Chicago, IL.
Day one will be headlined by Ramnstein, who -best to our knowledge- very rarely performs in the US. They will be supported by Chevelle, Ministry, Of Mice And Men, Meshuggah, In This Moment, Hollywood Undead, and more.
Day Two will be headlined by Disturbed with support from Korn, Breaking Benjamin, Gojira, Helmet, Deafheaven, The Devil Wears Prada, Pop Evil, Saint Asonia, Norhing More and more.
And then finally, Day Three will be headlined by Slipknot with support from Five Finger Death Punch, Marilyn Manson, Bullet For My Valentine, Baby Metal, Killswitch Engage, Asking Alexandria, Corrosion of Conformity, All That Remains, Letlive, and more as well.
The entire lineup can be found below, though that is the majority of it.
Many of these bands will be performing at other festivals around the US as well! Below is a list of the festivals happening around the US between late April and July of this year. Keep in mind, there may be more, but all of the ones mentioned featured artists that will also be at the Chicago Open Air fest.
Also note that the lineups mentioned below are NOT the full lineups. Be sure to check out each festival website for the full lineup, dates and ticket information.
There's also many happening around Europe in the summer, but that's all to be discussed another time.
