DayTrip Music Festival is just one more reason why Chicago has a domineering live music scene in the summer.
This particular (day) festival leads fans on a journey of breathtaking atmospheres and unforgettable emotion. Instead of recycling the same headline acts, DayTrip claims to “spotlight 100 of the freshest faces in electronic music.”
Last weekend, they were joined by notable names like Alvin Risk, Milk N Cookies, and Buku. Starting May 24th, the festival has taken place every Sunday at Redmoon Theater in Chicago.
There are three separate stages across 56,000 sq ft. The outdoor stage is a 20-foot long shipping container covered with murals from some of the most talented street artists.The main room stage is a 30-foot rotating drum tower. And the cool room stage is an intimately colored platform that sets the perfect environment.
Constructed to be the ultimate festival experience, DayTrip is more than just a rare musical experience. Here’s what you can do:
-Get covered in 10,000 gallons of paint while raving to the hottest underground electronic DJs.
-Bring your board and cruise around an awesome skate park.
-Eat a whole tub of Tollhouse cookie dough.
Above all else, the greatest thing about DayTrip (besides landing Alvin Risk) is their VIP policy. Here’s what they have to say about reserved sections for very important people:
“F*ck VIP. Everyone should have equal access to every aspect of the festival. We’re tired of watching sectioned off a**holes sitting in air-conditioned tents getting a pedicure.”
We couldn’t agree more. Gates open at 12 p.m. on Sunday and the party goes till 10 p.m. Tickets are just $25.
