Chicago Open Air has also announced additional onsite experiences, as well as an official kickoff dinner, that will be a part of the second annual festival. The festival will be held July 14, 15 and 16 at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, IL, just outside Chicago.
The Chicago Open Air music lineup leads off with a rare U.S. festival appearance from rock legends KISS (headlining Friday) as well as one of the first solo performances from Ozzy Osbourne (headlining Sunday) since the final Black Sabbath tour, where he will reunite with guitarist Zakk Wylde after a decade apart. Rock heavyweights Korn will headline Saturday. Overall, the three-day music, craft beer and Gourmet Man Food festival will feature over 40 music performances, also including Rob Zombie, Slayer, Godsmack, Megadeth, Stone Sour, Seether, Anthrax, Lamb of God, Meshuggah, Amon Amarth and many more on the Main Stage and the BlackCraft Stage. SiriusXM’s Jose Mangin returns to host the weekend and introduce acts. General Admission and VIP tickets are on sale now at www.ChicagoOpenAir.com and at all Chicago-area Kuma’s Corner locations.
In addition to music, a number of special events, onsite attractions and festival partners make Chicago Open Air a must-attend destination. Here is a preliminary list of what attendees can expect.
