Website The Chive to launch music fest at Soldier Field in June

May 21, 2014|Ernest Wilkins @ErnestWilkins | RedEye Sound Board

The Chive, a national men's interest and pop culture-focused website based in Chicago, will launch a music festival in June.

The site, which has amassed a cult-like following since its 2007 debut, will host its festival June 28th at Soldier Field. The lineup for Chive Fest will feature electronic act Empire Of the Sun and Atlanta rap dynamo 2 Chainz on the main stage.

The festival will provide activities such as a life-sized game of Operation. Organizers are also planning "a spectacle that will actually be visible from space," according to a press release. Given the demographic of the website, here's hoping that spectacle isn't the "largest gathering of bearded guys in cargo shorts in history."

Tickets for Chive Fest are available here. The festival also will tour to Seattle, Denver and Dallas.

The full lineup is below. (*** = Redeye Sound Board approved act)

  • Empire of the Sun

  • Holy Ghost!
