Heavy Chicago will take place on October 28 and November 4 and 5 at Chicago's newest music venue, Avondale Music Hall.
"We are so excited to be partnering with Live Wire, Kuma's and Pabst Blue Ribbon to bring a brand-new metal festival to Chicago, hosted in the city's newest music venue, Avondale Music Hall, which even Time Out says is located in one of the buzziest neighborhoods in the world," said Last Rites founder Sean Duffy.
"Three shows over two weekends will bring some of the heaviest music the Northside has seen, including Trouble's first Chicago show in over five years, Acid King, Corrosion of Conformity, DRI on their 40th anniversary tour for Crossover and the ONLY show in 2023 for Repulsion. We wanted to make sure to bring out as many metalheads as possible and have kept the prices super affordable with three-day tickets starting at $100 (that's just $33.33 a day). We look forward to seeing everyone in the inaugural year in what we hope is an annual event."
The lineup thus far includes (with more to be announced):
- Acid King
- Novembers Doom
- Corrosion Of Conformity
- The Crosses
