From our own DJ intern SAGAR JHA:

This year is the 30th annual Taste of Lincoln Avenue Festival in Lincoln Park. This will be my second year DJing this festival. Last year was a blast. Taste of Lincoln Avenue features the biggest and best restaurants in Lincoln Park. It is a huge festival, and one of my personal favorites of the summer.

This year the festival kicks off this Saturday (July 27th) at 12PM, and ends 10PM on Sunday (July 28th) night. The festival runs from 12PM-10PM each day. It’s definitely a great time if you live nearby or in Chicago and want to head to a festival that will be a little different than what you’re used to. Cliche, but it has a very ‘Lincoln Park feel’ to the festival.

One of the coolest things about the festival this year is the fact that they have dedicated a stage to the electronic dance music movement. The stage this year is being hosted by Lincoln Park’s Capacity Bar Group. Also this year there will a craft beer section with free arcade games hosted by Headquarters Beercade.

I’m super excited for this year mostly because I’ll be DJing both days. This year I’ll be playing at the Capacity Bar Group/Promose7en Side Stage, and Bar Forza on Sunday. Last year, I was only booked to play an early set. This year I’ll be playing 4-5 on Saturday and 1-2 on Sunday.

If you have kids, Taste of Lincoln Avenue is also very child friendly. This have a childrens area with a petting zoo, and stage entertainment to keep them occupied. Usually all the bars on Lincoln have booths set up and offer beer and drinks at a fair price throughout the whole weekend. If you’ve never been to Taste of Lincoln Avenue, or otherwise known as ‘Lincoln Fest,’ it’s definitely something you should check out, regardless of your age.
