ChillFest, the Wicker Park Bucktown Chamber of Commerce’s annual pop up music festival, is back for a sixth year! Featuring nearly 100 local musicians playing live, acoustic sets in local storefronts throughout the neighborhood, this day of music continues to celebrate the creative roots of the Wicker Park and Bucktown neighborhoods.

By filling out this application, I agree to the following terms:

  • I agree to perform at ChillFest at my assigned time(s) & venue(s).
  • I agree to perform a 30-60 minute set.
  • I understand that ChillFest is an acoustic music festival. While some venues may offer amplification, I am prepared to play an entirely acoustic, unamplified performance.
  • In the event that I must cancel, or am otherwise not able to perform at my assigned time(s)/venue(s), I will notify the Wicker Park Bucktown Special Events Coordinator at Debbie@wickerparkbucktown.com as soon as possible.
    • If I do not notify the Special Events Coordinator of cancellation & do not perform as agreed, I understand that I will be barred from performing at other Wicker Park Bucktown events, including all current and future ChillFest-affiliated events.
  • I understand that the WPB Chamber reserves the right to record audio & video, as well photograph all artists for use in ChillFest & WPB Chamber promotions. Artists will be credited where their work is used.
  • I understand that, while venues will be providing the performance space, I am responsible for all my own equipment. Neither the venues nor the WPB Chamber can be held liable for lost or stolen items.
  • I understand that ChillFest is also for the benefit of the venue(s) in which I may be performing. The venue(s) reserve the right to ask me to stop performing in the event it becomes disruptive to regular business.


Thanks for your interest! We will be in touch shortly to inform you of the status of your application. In the meantime, look for news and updates on the ChillFest Chicago Facebook Page.
