The City of Chicago announced today the launch of the Protect Chicago Music Series, a monthly series of music events exclusively for fully COVID-19 vaccinated Chicagoans. A partnership between the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE), the Protect Chicago Music Series will include a variety of musical events taking place all across Chicago as an incentive and benefit for Chicagoans who receive a COVID-19 vaccine to protect their families, communities, and themselves.
The kickoff event takes place on Saturday, May 22, in Hyde Park. DJ Ron Trent and Duane Powell will perform. The Silverroom is a partner in the first concert. Attendees must have received the final dose of a two-dose vaccine or a single-dose vaccine two weeks prior to each event to be eligible to attend. Each event will be ticketed, and attendees must also bring their CDC vaccination card as proof of vaccination and matching photo ID.
Individuals who are already fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are also eligible for the music series.
Additional dates and artists in the Protect Chicago Music Series will be announced in the coming weeks throughout the summer.
