Concert Webcast: Hippo Campus Performs On The BlueCross BlueShield Performance Stage WATCH LIVE

Saturday Morning Flashback: 1978 [Playlist]

The biggest Chicago concert event happened in August when Mayor Michael Bilandic “borrowed” the concept of an urban outdoor festival from Milwaukee’s Summerfest and presented the first annual Chicagofest on Navy Pier. Long before any renovations would transform the dingy site into a glittering tourist destination, half a million people stacked their beer cups and happily wandered the pier among a variety of stages (most of them afloat) over the course of ten days. It was hot, it was crowded, and it was a good time.
