#YASfest

The Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) is thrilled to announce the lineup for the daylong YAS! Fest presented by Allstate Insurance Company. FREE and open to the public, YAS! Fest – the second annual Youth Arts Showcase – is Chicago’s largest celebration of young artists and youth arts organizations, featuring creative work of musicians, actors, dancers, artists and more throughout Millennium Park. Teens and families will explore youth arts programs from across the city and enjoy a showcase of hundreds of outstanding young Chicago artists.

The headliners for the event include hip hop star Tink with an opening performance by singer/songwriter OSTON (Austin Wolfe). Chicago rapper Lizzie G will emcee, and JAMAL SMALLZ will spin music throughout the day beginning at 2 p.m. Following festival headliner Tink, the Full Moon Jam will perform at Cloud Gate Plaza as part of the Millennium Park Summer Theatre Residency.

Highlights of the day’s programs include the Chicago Park District’s T.I.P. (Teens In The Park) Fest featuring audition winners from across Chicago and a live broadcast with WFMT’s Introductions featuring Latin Grammy Award-nominated ensemble Mariachi Herencia de México and Merit School of Music. In honor of the Year of Chicago Theatre, CircEsteem youth circus performers will pop up at the Great Lawn and youth theatre ensembles will be featured in the YAS! Lounge. Additionally, the day’s schedule includes creative activities across performing, visual, literary and media arts – from youth DJ workshops to radio podcasting to photography to interactive artmaking with Chicago’s many youth and arts agencies. The finale will also include recognition for the 2019 Rising Star Honor Roll, the city’s annual program to recognize teens in the arts.
