If West Fest were a kid, it’d be old enough to sass back at you. It’s been twelve years since the West Town street festival has taken flight, becoming that rare public exhibition that managed to have something for everyone without getting cheesy or pandering about it.

West Fest just announced their first wave line-up. The Main Stage at Chicago Avenue and Damen includes Luna, Craig Finn, Bully, Cloud Nothings, The Eternals and Natural Child. The notorious DJ stage (which just turned 10 years old in its own right) at Chicago Avenue on Wood features:

Mark Farina
Derrick Carter
DJ Heather with DJ Colette
Jevon Jackson
DJ Lady D
Diz

This is just the first wave and there will, we’re told, be many more to come.

West Fest is July 8 through July 10 2016 on Chicago Avenue between Wood Street and Damen in West Town.
