Friends and fellow head bangers, we wanted you to be the first to know that Chicago Open Air will be taking a hiatus in 2018.
Unfortunately, we cannot bring you the caliber event you deserve this year.
Stay tuned for updates in 2019!
Now we at New Fury are saddened by learning this news. The first two years of the festival were a good time filled with solid lineups. 2018 seemed to have issues between having the line up reveal pushed back by months as well as the festival itself being pushed into late summer instead of mid July.
Rumors circulating about not being able to get headliners to draw huge or a solid undercard were rampant and do seem plausible but all of us here wish COA the best in coming back in 2019 more killer than ever.
