Expecting more than 5,000 young adults, the event will go down on Northerly Island on June 24, and is geared toward 13 to 24-year-olds. Performers range from revered collaborator Donnie Trumpet to bubbling artist DLow, and sponsored activities from Kanye West's non-profit Donda's House, and The Art Institute.

The festival follows Chance's recent open mic night for Chicago adolescents. Vic Mensa and Kanye West recently made a surprise appearance at the event.
