Chance the Rapper's Magnificent Coloring Day festival was a crowning achievement for Chicago's most celebrated young artist. The 23-year-old Chatham native threw the day-long festival -- it began at 1 p.m. with Francis and the Lights and ended at 11:30 p.m. with a performance by Skrillex -- at the White Sox's Cellular One Field in the heart of Chicago's South Side on Saturday (Sept. 24).
To celebrate the release of Chance the Rapper's Coloring Book, the Chicago rapper and his team threw four consecutive parties on Saturday (May 21). Attendees purchased $40 tickets for one of four different time slots, except the 8 p.m. show, a 21-and-over event that included complementary Goose Island beer and cost $60 per ticket. A school bus picked up guests at Pulaski International School and headed to a secret location of his Magnificent Color World, which turned out to be the Goose Island Beer Company's barrell warehouse in Humboldt Park.
A glowing image of Chief Keef projected on stage at a hip-hop festival Hammond, Indiana, was shut down by the local police department just a few minutes into its performance on Saturday night (July 25).
