Red Bull Music Festival (RBMF) is expanding to Chicago and event's inaugural Windy City lineup is bringing the heat this autumn.

The monthlong event kicks off Nov. 3 with G.O.O.D. Music taking over Wintrust Arena for an ensemble performance that features the likes of Pusha T, Teyana Taylor, Valee, Sheck Wes, Desiigner, 070 Shake and special guest Nas. Though label founder Kanye West is noticeably absent from the billing, given his recent album announcement, a surprise appearance seems plausible. 

Over the following weeks, Chicago native Vic Mensa will return home for a performance at Saffron Rails, while CupcakKe, Jamila Woods and Makaya McCraven will each headline their own events as well.

Outside of headliner performances, RBMF Chicago will feature other events, including a career retrospective conversation with No I.D. on Nov. 20 and a drone night featuring a dozen of local experimental music artists.

Though RBMF Chicago is making its debut this year, it serves as a return to Chicago for Red Bull Music after 2017's 30 Days in Chicago, which showcased performances from Migos, Mitski and more.
