ABOUT TIP Fest
TIP Fest provides young Chicago artists the opportunity to perform and showcase their talent in front of thousands of audience members. This year Chicago Park District, Night Out in the Parks, Chicago’s DCASE (Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events) and Art of Culture Inc. joined forces to host three auditions throughout the city (one South, one West and one North). Over 20 acts came out to audition. DJ Bman is the organization’s newest DJ (who joins DJ Mike P as a member of our DJ Team). Marie the DJ, works often with Urban Fetes and will open up the show. Our TIP Fest Performers who auditioned and won sets include Marko Stat$, Nailah, Walt the King and K.E.N. The TIP Fest Stage will be headlined by members of Chicago’s Own PIVOT Gang including Frsh Waters, Mfnmelo, Squeak Pivot and Joseph Chilliams. The TIP Fest stage will be hosted by Kyle Santillian of WGCI. This year will be the 4th Year of the festival.
