Chance the Rapper Curating Free Fest for Chicago Teens
Amid growing concern for festival and concert goers after this week’s 61 arrests during Hot 97’s Summer Jam in East Rutherford, NJ, Chicago-based Chance the Rapper is doing something decidedly positive: curating a fest solely for teenagers.
Featuring Chance-picked performances by Surf’s Donnie Trumpet and Chicago “bop king” DLow -- who’s also performing at September’s Life is Beautiful fest headlined by Stevie Wonder, Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar -- the first annual Teens In Parks festival will be a completely free event open to the public, ages 13-24 (plus adult chaperones).

In addition to the music, there will be a slew of activity tents, hosted by The Art Institute and Donda’s House (the arts non-profit founded in memory of Kanye West’s mom), offering lessons in graffiti art, break dancing, jewelry making and fashion design.
