Headliner Act at the Toyota Rock 'n' Roll Concert Series
Prepare to get funky in Chicago! We’re celebrating Chicago’s roots in Jazz with Dirty Dozen Brass Band as the headliner for the Toyota Rock ‘n’ Roll Concert Series at the Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicago Half Marathon on Sunday, July 16!
After you run the streets of Chicago, celebrate your run with Dirty Dozen Brass Band at the Finish Line Festival in Grant Park!
2017 Concert Schedule: TBD
Entertainment on the Course
Music makes up the heart and “sole” of #RNRCHI. No matter what distance you run, enjoy a variety of music from alternative, classic and punk rock to blues, jazz, acapella and soul along the race course. Runners and spectators alike will be “dancin’ in the streets”.
Half marathoners, be aware that City Officials have told us we can’t wake up The Loop neighborhood with amplified music on race morning, but fear not, we’ve got your sensory experience covered! Your first five miles will feature unique entertainment that reflects Chicago’s energy – acapella groups, cheer stations and more. And just after mile five, ditch your headphones ‘cos that’s where the amps get cranked!!
Is your band ready to rock for thousands of athletes and spectators? We will be recruiting the best local bands from all genres to take the stage along the course.
