30 DAY FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN!
We are reaching out to all our friends to help make this the best Block Party yet!
Saturday, July 20th 2013,
The Sound System Block Party is a day long celebration of Music, Art and Dance!
We bring diverse art to a diverse community with 3 Stages and over 50 performances of Music and Visual Artists. What started off as a small gathering of friends has become Chicago's best homegrown Block Party, 5,000 strong!
A special Thanks to the Silver Room's owner Eric Williams for 10 years of funding this event. As we have grown, so have our expenses! In order to continue this tradition at the level you've come to expect, we need you!
It's with the Block Party spirit of community that we invite you to contribute. Any amount will help!
WHY DO WE DO THIS...
We love Chicago! Despite Chicago's social ills, we believe that music and art can unite us all. We know what the power of togetherness feels like.
We know how much this event means to so many of you. Independent Music you don't hear on the radio.
Family friendly, bring yo kids!
One of the truly all-ages events in Chicago.
We are grassroots with the mission of spreading art, community and love.
