Following a huge inaugural year in 2014, Chicago’s AAHH! Fest took a year hiatus and many wondered if the Common-led festival would return to the Windy City. With huge performances from big Chi-town names like Common, Lupe Fiasco, Twista, Jennifer Hudson, a superstar surprise headlining set from Kanye West, comedy from Dave Chappelle and other memorable performances from MC Lyte, De La Soul, Jay Electronica and more, AAHH! Fest had a monumental first year, which left many disappointed when news broke that the festival would not be returning in 2015.
But fear not! AAHH! Fest is returning this year, as Common will surely bring another great lineup to his hometown in 2016. Coming back to Union Park on September 24-25 (now a two day festival), we couldn’t be more excited to see what Common has in store. While the lineup has yet to be announced, you can now buy pre-sale tickets for the festival’s main stage, which will take place on Sunday, September 25th.
AAHH! Fest isn’t just a great music fest either, it’s also Common’s dedication to bringing education programs and jobs to Chicago, by raising funds to support the Common Ground Foundation and Donda’s House, the charitable organizations of Common, Kanye West and Rhymefest.
