The 8th annual Pilsen Fest returns on August 18 and 19 along with its "one village, one sound" objective that celebrates and embraces diversity, solidarity and unity. With a projected attendance of 80,000 this year, the growing, high-energy music and arts festival reflects the community spirit and creative drive of its eclectic neighborhood.

As always, Pilsen Fest 2018 aims to expose locals to the deep pool of cultural talent that exists in Pilsen and the Chicago area with its blend of live music, food, art, children's activities, and handcrafted goods-aimed at highlighting the neighborhood's Latino heritage. The outdoor street party also promotes cultural literacy and health and wellbeing through key partners like the bilingual magazine El BeiSMan and the Pilsen Community Market. At its core, Pilsen Fest is a music festival, offering a vast array of genres and styles on three stages headlined annually by Grammy Award-winning and Latin Grammy Award-winning acts.

Some of the previous lineups include names like Nina Sky, Rey Pila, iLe, Monsier Perine, Gaby Moreno and Danay Suarez - to name a few. 2018 acts will be announced in subsequent release. This year, Pilsen Fest will once again give local singers, songwriters, bands, soloists - and now DJ's - an opportunity to compete each week (at Simone's) for a spot in the Pilsen Fest music lineup. Registration forms for The Battle 2018 are now available on https://www.pilsenfestchicago.com/
