Festivals, graduation ceremonies, sporting events: Chance the Rapper is the hip-hop star for all occasions. The Chicago artist and activist will headline a concert next month in his hometown to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Special Olympics. 

Chance will lead a bill that features Usher, Frances & the Lights, Smokey Robinson, Daya, O.A.R., Jason Mraz and more for the “celebration concert,” to be held July 21 at Huntington Bank Pavilion on Northerly Island. 

The day-long show will raise funds for the Special Olympics, which was established in 1968 to provide opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities. Tickets are priced on a sliding scale from $50 to $150 and can be purchased here at Chance’s official website.
