Chicago Weekend What's Up: June 8-10

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

This is a big music weekend in Chicago.

Blues Fest crowds will be jamming in Grant Park, and Wrigley Field will be rocking out to the sounds of Pink Floyd's Roger Waters, who's bringing "The Wall" to the park Friday night.

It's a massive stage show, featuring enormous high-def video screens and the classic Pink Floyd album performed by Waters himself.

Wrigleyville will be filled with a different kind of sound Saturday night – it'll be all about country. The Brad Paisley virtual reality tour will take over the field. Miranda Lambert and The Band Perry join him on this tour.

Other festivals include the Old Town Art Fair, the Wells Street Art Fair, Ribfest Chicago, the Andersonville Midsommarfest, the Printer's Row Lit Fest and Chill & Grill at Lakeview's Waveland Park.
