Q87.7’s SUMMER SHOW IS NO PICNIC…
But it is a PIQNIQ!
Chicago, IL - Q87.7 (WKQX-LP 87.7 MHz Chicago) has announced details of its
first summer concert – PIQNIQ.
First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre will be the venue for a ten-band, two-stage allday
music festival on Saturday, June 29th, 2013.
Headlining PIQNIQ will be Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who recently received rave reviews
for their show-stealing performances at Coachella. Also appearing on the main
stage are Bush, AWOLNATION, Silversun Pickups and Atlas Genius.
The day begins with performances on the second stage by Cold War Kids,
twenty | one | pilots, New Politics, Capital Cities and Maximum Hedrum.
Q87.7 Operations Manager Jim Richards said, “Clearly, there’s an appetite for
festival shows, especially in Chicago – the home of Lollapalooza. We’re excited
and proud to offer our listeners a day full of live music from established and
emerging artists. I really appreciate all of the bands for making this inaugural
event bigger than any of us expected.”
PJ, Program Director added, “Any time you can offer a show with 10 bands for as
little at $10, it’s a win. We also didn’t want to waste any time, so the pre-sale
started the moment the show was announced. Look for us to blow out a ton of
tickets leading up to the on-sale Friday.”
Q87.7 Junkies are able to get tickets through a special pre-sale that began
Monday, April 29th at 5:00 p.m. The public on-sale is Friday May 3rd at 5:00 p.m.
Tickets available at Ticketmaster starting at $10.00 (including parking).
