MERLIN MEDIA Alternative WKQX-LP (Q87.7)/CHICAGO has announced its first summer concert. Q87.7's two-stage all-day "PIQNIQ" music festival is SATURDAY, JUNE 29th at FIRST MIDWEST BANK AMPHITHEATRE with YEAH YEAH YEAHS headlining the main stage with BUSH, AWOLNATION, SILVERSUN PICKUPS, and ATLAS GENIUS. The day begins with performances on the second stage by COLD WAR KIDS, TWENTY | ONE | PILOTS, NEW POLITICS, CAPITAL CITIES, and MAXIMUM HEDRUM.
Q87.7 OM JIM RICHARDS said, "Clearly, there’s an appetite for festival shows, especially in CHICAGO – the home of LOLLAPALOOZA. We’re excited and proud to offer our listeners a day full of live music from established and emerging artists. I really appreciate all of the bands for making this inaugural event bigger than any of us expected."
"Any time you can offer a show with 10 bands for as little at $10, it’s a win," added PD PJ. "We also didn’t want to waste any time, so the pre-sale started the moment the show was announced. Look for us to blow out a ton of tickets leading up to the on-sale FRIDAY."
Q87.7 Junkies are able to get tickets through a special pre-sale that began TODAY at 5p (CT). The public on-sale is FRIDAY, MAY 3rd at 5p. Tickets available at TICKETMASTER starting at $10 (including parking). Find additional info at Q877.com.
