Local Venues Announce Creation of New Save the Rock N Roll Fest 2020
A quartet of local Chicago venues including Reggie’s, Cobra Lounge, Liar’s Club, and LiveWire Lounge have announced the creation of a new three-day music festival called Save the Rock N Roll Fest, scheduled to take place December 11-13, 2020. In addition to a “shitload of bands playing all weekend,” the event will also include live band karaoke, burlesque, comedy, bingo, a pig roast, and venue memorabilia raffles. Described as a “true Chicago rock fest,” proceeds from ticket sales will be divided between the four venues “in order to help keep open the rooms that host much of the local punk, metal, and hard rock scenes.” In addition, the Reggie’s bus fleet will be providing free shuttles between the four venues for the duration of the festival, which is designed to help “keep the rock scene alive in Chicago and come back stronger than ever.” Three-day passes are good for all four venues, and go on sale May 8 for $135. Tickets may be purchased on the Save the Rock N Roll Fest website.
