Chance the Rapper Launching Teen-Only Music Festival

(Radio.com) Chance the Rapper's cool stock in the eyes of teens just shot up. The Chicago MC, who's currently on a victory lap following the release of his latest Surf--his album as The Social Experiment with Donnie Trumpet--has announced that he's curating a festival in his hometown just for the city's youth.

Dubbed Teens in the Park, the festival will be held at Chicago's lakeside open field, Northerly Island, on June 24. On the roster you'll find Donnie Trumpet, Chicago's DLow, and a handful of other artists that have yet to be announced. Aside from performances, there will also be activities set up by Kanye West's non-profit Donda House and The Art Institute.

Chance's festival will be yet another reason to visit Chicago this summer, as the city also hosts Pitchfork Music Festival July 17-19 and Lollapalooza July 31-August 2. Read more here.
