In 2014, AAHH! Fest rivaled all other Chicago music festivals in just one day. The rap and R&B festival, led by Chicago’s own, Common, saw performances from Kanye West, Dave Chappelle, Jennifer Hudson and more. The next year however, the festival announced that it would be taking a year-long hiatus, hoping to return in 2016.
The festival surprised many and kept its promise, returning in 2016 with huge performances from J. Cole, The Roots, Vic Mensa, Common and a surprise appearance from Chance The Rapper.
Unfortunately for fans wishing to attend AAHH! Fest in 2017, history is repeating itself as AAHH! Fest abruptly announced that this year’s festival would be cancelled. In an official statement the festival announced that they are “retolling this initiative to create an experience that goes far beyond an outdoor music event.” And with that, the festival announced that it will return on September 15, 2018.
Be sure to save the date and hope that AAHH! Fest returns bigger than ever.
