WHAT A WEEK IN CHICAGO HOUSE MUSIC!

WHAT A WEEK IN CHICAGO HOUSE MUSIC!

This year’s festival lived up to all of my expectations.  We call it our “house holiday” and it really is. I reconnected with friends, saw people I hadn’t seen in years, danced until my feet hurt and enjoyed some of the best music by the best DJs this city has to offer.  It’s a shame this event wasn’t covered by many in the media. Two days of peace, love and music without one negative incident deserves to be celebrated, especially with all the negative news about Chicago in the news on a daily basis.  For the amount of music and talent I witnessed, it was worth the price of admission and more. It’s my favorite time of year and I can’t wait until next year!

Congratulations Chosen Few DJs for another year and another amazing festival!
