New this year, Red Bull Sound Select Presents: 30 Days in Chicago will be celebrating two special anniversaries of two of its Chicago curators. On November 15th, Red Bull Sound Select will present Parquet Courts as part of Empty Bottle’s 25th year-long  anniversary programming. This seminal Chicago venue has played host to  diverse and genre-spanning musical acts both from the local scene and national touring acts, establishing itself as an integral part of the city’s cultural fabric. On November 4th Red Bull Sound Select will host a very special 10th Anniversary Celebration of Fake Shore Drive. The Chicago based hip-hop blog has been an integral part of the scene as an early champion of artists such as Chance the Rapper, Chief Keef, Mick Jenkins, Lil Durk and Vic Mensa. In 2013 founder Andrew Barber joined Red Bull Sound Select as a curator for the Midwest, helping to elevate the careers of up and coming acts. For its 10th Anniversary, Barber has invited some of Fake Shore Drive’s closest friends including DJ’s, Rappers and some unannounced guests.
Red Bull Sound Select Presents: 30 Days in Chicago showcases emerging artists who have been curated into the Red Bull Sound Select program, an accelerator for music artists, by leading music influencers from around the world, including Innovative Leisure in Los Angeles, Laneway Festival in Australia and Fake Shore Drive in Chicago. The artist development program is currently in 22 cities around the world.
