2020 is The Year of Chicago Music!

The City of Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events just announced that 2020 will be the “Year of Chicago Music!”

It’s a year-long celebration of the city’s musical heritage and how that rich history has impacted every type of musical genre.

They're also adding something new to the summer festival lineup... the big new showpiece of the year will be a 17-day music festival in June that links together the House Music, Gospel and Blues festivals. Their goal is to make it like the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Fest.

And a special shout out to Rhymefest & Juan Teague on being co-chairs of the celebration!
