This year’s lineup brings another diverse group of artists to the Windy City, including Lido, Kaytranada, Shiba San, Chet Faker, Gallant, Jerry Folk, Ryan Hemsworth, FKJ, and many more. Read on for our guide to this weekend including who to see at, what to do, and what the festival, as well as where to keep the party going at the end of each day of the festival.
