Adding to the exciting event announcements over this past month, Pride In The Park Chicago will return for a second year with a compelling musical lineup.

Pride In The Park first debuted as a one-day event in 2019. It will now return as a limited capacity, two-day ticketed fest on Saturday, June 26th and Sunday, June 27th at the historic Grant Park, home to Lollapalooza. 

The event will feature a wide array of musical artists, with The Queen of Funk and ten-time Grammy winner Chaka Khan headlining. Electronic music lovers should be drawn in by the other headliners, superstars Gryffin and Tiësto.

Sprucing up the lineup is Australian singer-songwriter Betty Who, who performed at Pride In The Park's inaugural edition. Other noteworthy artists include Tracy Young, the first woman ever to receive a Grammy in the remix category, Alyssa Edwards of RuPaul’s Drag Race, and legendary Chicago deep house producer Derrick Carter.
