The A.V. Club (the arts-and-entertainment wing of The Onion) and The Hideout have combined forces to present another terrific festival just outside The Hideout, at 1354 W. Wabansia St., Chicago. The Hideout Block Party has always prided itself on being a low-stress, family-friendly festival, and that tradition will continue this year. Food and drink will of course be available, along with a kids area, a bike valet, and much more.
A one-day ticket for Friday is $35, a Saturday one-day ticket is $40 and two-day passes are available for $70. A portion of every ticket sold will benefit a variety of Chicago charities, including Rock For Kids.
