Chicago Concerts To See This Month (July, 2016)


We’re here to do two things:

  1. Chew bubble gum.
  2. Provide you with a breakdown of the best electronic music concerts around Chicago this month, and every month for the foreseeable future.

Seeing as we’re all out of bubble gum, this leaves us one option. Below you’ll find a list of electronic music concerts that we recommend you go see this month, July of 2016.


Concerts To See In Chicago This Month (July, 2016) 

7693_image_1462464531_1_largeKill the Noise | The MID | Friday, July 8th

If you don’t know who Kill the Noise is, you should probably just go back to reading Buzzfeed.

For those of you who do know this dubstep phenomenon, KTN will make a stop at the MID on Friday night for his Alt Classic tour. He’ll be joined by supporting acts like Team Ezy & Madsonik (who are also filthy).

Buy tickets here.

311 + Matisyahu | FirstMerit Bank Pavilion | Friday, July 8th

Not electronic, but this would be a shame not to include.

311 is an American rock/reggae band from Omaha, Nebraska. Matisyahu is a Jewish American reggae singer slash beatboxer. So when you consider the fact that Northerly Island is outdoors and literally on an island, you’ll realize what we have: this show is going to be lit.

Fresh off his first Coachella performance, Melvv will headline the third edition of Summer School on Saturday, July 9th (w/ opening sets from Milk N’ Cooks and Aaron Mead).
