The Windy City’s Taste of Chicago has shared perhaps its best lineup in years. Not only can people sample food from some of the best restaurants that Chicago has to offer, but you can also catch performances from some of the best names in music.

Headlining Taste of Chicago in 2018, from Wednesday, July 11th to Sunday, July 15th, will be Brandi Carlile, Juanes, Black Star (Talib Kweli and Mos Def), The Flaming Lips, BJ the Chicago Kid, George Clinton and more! The food portion of the festival is free, but if you want a good seat in the Petrillo Music Shell (where the headliners perform), tickets range from $18 to $50. Tickets go on sale at 10AM this Friday.
