Summer Smash 2021 Preview
When: August 20-22
Where: Douglas Park, Chicago
One day in 2018, two days in 2019, and three days, 75 artists on three stages in 2021. As you can see, Lyrical Lemonade's Chicago based hip hop festival is growing, and growing quick. It seems to be the perfect mix of hip hop - you have the up and comers and you have the cemented heavy hitters both at one fest.
The late Juice WRLD was the last artist to bless a Summer Smash in 2019, so I think we'll all be looking forward to the tribute set they have lined up for this year. Over the weekend we'll be checking out a ton of different sets - Earl Sweatshirt, A$AP Rocky, Saba, Benny The Butcher, City Morgue, Femdot and Lil Uzi Vert are on the top of our list. Check out the full playlist we put together below.
Follow along throughout the weekend for daily photo recaps. If you're attending, have fun and be safe.
