Open Air Festival

Get out of your rocker and rock on at the Open Air Festival at Toyota Park July 15-17, and stay at the nearby and affordable Best Western Inn Suites Midway Hotel!

Do you like punk music, new wave, grunge, Punk, do you? Then the Open Air Festival is for you, bringing together the bands Rammstein, Chevelle and Ministry, Disturbed, Korn, Breaking Benjamin, Slip Knot, Five Finger Death, Punch and Marilyn Manson! And there will be man food, Chicago pizza and hot dogs and gyros!

Rammstein, the German machine/hard guitar band, has an image of extreme violence, but in fact the band members have children and families, and are quite normal. Chevelle, whose members hail from the Chicago area, is primarily a grunge band that has sold well over four million records. Their single “The Red” rose to #3 on the mainstream charts.

Korn, who cites Metallica and Nirvana as major influences, write a lot of songs about child abuse and other dark corners of the American heart. They are credited with establishing “Nu Metal,” a term under which all the above bands are identified.

Toyota Park, home of the Chicago Fire professional soccer team, is located at 7000 South Harlem Avenue in Bridgeview. For tickets and a complete schedule of performances, go online to and follow the prompts for the Open Air Festival.
