Chicago Open Air has announced additional onsite experiences, as well as an official kickoff dinner, that will be a part of the second annual festival. The festival will be held July 14, 15 and 16 at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, IL, just outside Chicago.

The Chicago Open Air music lineup leads off with a rare U.S. festival appearance from rock legends KISS (headlining Friday) as well as one of the first solo performances from OZZY OSBOURNE (headlining Sunday) since the final BLACK SABBATH tour, where he will reunite with guitarist Zakk Wylde after a decade apart. Rock heavyweights KORN will headline Saturday. Overall, the three-day music, craft beer and Gourmet Man Food festival will feature over 40 music performances, also including Rob Zombie, Slayer, Godsmack, Megadeth, Stone Sour, Seether, Anthrax, Lamb of God, Meshuggah, Amon Amarth and many more on the Main Stage and the BlackCraft Stage. SiriusXM’s Jose Mangin returns to host the weekend and introduce acts. General Admission and VIP tickets are on sale now at www.ChicagoOpenAir.com and at all Chicago-area Kuma’s Corner locations.

In addition to music, a number of special events, onsite attractions and festival partners make Chicago Open Air a must-attend destination. Here is a preliminary list of what attendees can expect.

Chicago Open Air Kickoff Dinner: Danny Wimmer Presents will be throwing the official Chicago Open Air Kickoff Dinner, held at Kuma’s Corner (2900 W. Belmont) on Thursday, July 13 at 7 p.m. For $50, attendees will be treated to burgers, appetizers and beer, and will have the chance to hang out with host Jose Mangin, from SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal.

Monster Energy will be keeping fans fueled up and ready to rock by offering free sampling on their Monster Energy viewing deck. Enjoy Monster Energy drinks from one of the best seats in the house. Make sure to check back throughout the festival for a schedule of Monster Energy’s interactive artist experiences. Most companies spend their money on ad agencies, TV commercials, radio spots and billboards to tell you how good their products are. At Monster Energy, we chose none of the above. Instead we support the scene, our bands, our athletes and our fans. We back athletes so they can make a career out of their passion. We promote concert tours, so our favorite bands can visit your hometown. We celebrate with our fans and riders by throwing parties and making the coolest events we can think of a reality.

Heavy Tiki: The dark side of Tiki is through the totems where savages and beasts enjoy Scorpion Bowls and Zombie cocktails—all in the name of tropical leisure. The Tiki Gods are looking for a good time and they have come to Chicago Open Air to find it! At the Heavy Tiki Bar, fans will find an oasis filled with killer cocktails, shade, and a live broadcast from the one and only Mancow, the legendary radio personality from Chicago’s WLUP.
