The Hideout Block Party

Can't Miss Chicago Summer Block Party
Can't make it to Lollapalooza? Just wait for The Hideout Block Party.

The Hideout Block Party is one of the best - and latest - summer music festivals in Chicago. The two-day festival is held outside of The Hideout, an intimate Chicago live music spot, over a weekend in mid-September. It brings big name acts to to a parking lot between Wicker Park and Lincoln Park for a block party that offers the opportunity to see your favorite acts from the front row without having to pay extra.

A wristband for both days is between $30 to $60.

In 2012, I managed to catch Wilco, pictured above, Iron & Wine and Wild Belle at the block party.

If you go, bring your appetite. The Hideout invites a lot of local food trucks to the party. Take the Red Line L train to the North/Clybourn station, then a westbound 72 bus along North Avenue to Elston and walk north a few blocks.
