"AHHH!!! Pilsen Music Festival" is a self-funded startup festival focused on enriching our community by providing local and creative musical entertainment to showcase the rich music and culture of Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood.

Pilsen is repeatedly overlooked during Chicago's music festival season. We intend to remedy this by hosting a community focused independent music festival on July 30th on Morgan St. beside Simone's bar (960 W 18th St). Bands will play outside between 12-8pm. An after-party headlined by Pilsen natives Ghetto Division will follow inside from 9pm to 3am.

An exciting festival environment and an eclectic, talented, local lineup will encourage festival goers to fully explore the diverse cultural and musical community.

The money we raise will allow us to secure the following:

  • Compensation for performers
  • Compensation for security
  • Staging (at least 12' x 16')
  • Sound equipment and engineering for inside and outside
  • Generator for outdoor stage
  • Promotional materials
  • Day-of decorations

Please donate to bring this independent music festival to Pilsen; the organizers, the bands, and all their fans are counting on you!
