2015 Taste of Chicago Music Lineup Announced

Posted by Leo Clark. on Friday, May 1st, 2015 at 5:42pm.

If there’s one outdoor event in downtown Chicago that somewhat defines the summer season here in the Windy City, many might choose the annual Taste of Chicago Festival, which highlights many of the city’s best restaurants, eateries and top professionals working in the industry. But contrary to what the name of the event might suggests, the Taste of Chicago is definitely about more than just great food in culinary works of art.


Each year, an awesome lineup of live music acts also perform, rounding out an entire week full of food, entertainment, and all kinds of summer fun. 2015 marks the Taste of Chicago’s 35th year (believe it or not), and today, the official lineup for the Bud Light Stage at the Taste has been announced.
