CMC Mission

CMC is dedicated to:

  • Promoting the Chicago music community locally, nationally, and internationally
  • Serving as the independent advocate for the community with government and the private sector
  • Nurturing the community towards future growth


Welcome to

We have compiled listings and schedules for as many of the free Chicago festivals that we can find! These are compiled in easy to read lists by festival on our new festivals website. Included wherever possible are hyperlinks to the artists website so that you are one click away from finding out in advance something about the artists you are going to enjoy (or doing some research when you get home!)

We have started to compile a searchable listing of resources within the Chicago music community. It is time for you to pitch in! If you own a business and want to be listed, please fill out the form on the resource page. If you know of a business that you think we should list, also fill out the form. We will post them as soon as they are verified. Meanwhile, check out the searchable database.
