Get your dancing shoes ready, because Pride In The Park is back.
Hosted in Chicago's iconic Grant Park, Pride In The Park is a two-day music festival and inclusive experience organized to celebrate and uplift the LGBTQ+ community. Scheduled for June 25th and 26th, this year's fest will feature two stages, a slate of activist speakers and a bevy of remarkable electronic music talent.
Headlining performances from The Chainsmokers and Alesso will lead the weekend, with support from Joel Corry, Rebecca Black, Daya, Moore Kismet, J. Worra and Mz Worthy, among others. The festival will also feature Spencer Brown, a renowned dance music producer who came out in 2020 and was named one of EDM.com's Best Music Producers last year.
RuPaul's Drag Race winners Shea Couleé, Monet X Change and Priyanka will also grace the main Pride Stage. To keep the party going, there will be special performances by Aaron Aanenson, GSP, Alexandrea Diamond, Avi Sic, Sasha Love, Kenya Black Dupree, Dusty Bahls and many more.

"We’re excited about the Iconic Chicago Pride Parade making a return that Sunday, with many parade-goers planning to continue the celebration afterward with us at Grant Park," said Dusty Carpenter, Pride In The Park Lead Organizer. "Equally as exciting is being able to present this all-star lineup to the community—keeping our spirits high."
"As much as we celebrate Pride today as a party, it has never been more important to remember that Pride is a protest, and the queer community is continuously fending off anti-gay legislation and sentiments," Carpenter continued. "From anti-trans legislation to 'Don't Say Gay' laws impacting our youth that while we dance we must also fight for one another."
