CHICAGO (March 31, 2015) – This spring, Edison Park unveils a new, three-day musical event called, North by Northwest Highway Music Fest. Taking place May 1-3, 2015, the indoor weekend concert series features more than 45 amazing bands at four of Edison Park’s most recognizable venues.
Edison Park Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, Melissa McIntyre says the inaugural event is being brought to the area in an effort to attract more cultural and musical awareness to the community.
“This new fest is designed to bring more fun and entertainment to our neighborhood,” McIntyre says. “It’s all about the music—and what you can hear and see. We want guests of Edison Park to recognize that there is more to our area than drinking and partying. There is also great music, delicious food and great events that bring us together as a community.”
The North by Northwest Edison Park Music Fest promises to offer a taste of something for everyone. Sponsored by Blue Moon Brewing Company, the festival will take place across the neighborhood’s most well-known venues, including Emerald Isle, Firewater Saloon, Edison Park Inn and Moretti’s Edison Park. The bands kick off on Friday, May 1 at 6pm and will continue through Saturday the 2nd and into Sunday, May 3 until 11pm.
Throughout the weekend, music fans have the opportunity to see more than 45 local and regional bands.

Guests also have the option of purchasing a $10 all-day pass for both Saturday and Sunday or a $25 all-inclusive pass that allows for unlimited music all three days.
