Lincoln Hall + Schubas + Metro + Smartbar + Hideout + Sleeping Village


Founded in 2005, Lincoln Hall and Schubas’ Tomorrow Never Knows has proven for over a decade that music fans will brave the brutal Chicago cold for a good show. Taking place over the course of five days in January, TNK gathers the best of rising local indie artists as well as acclaimed national acts, including both musicians and comedians. TNK is a city-wide event, uniting six independent venues in the area: Lincoln Hall, Schubas, Metro, Smartbar, Hideout and for the first time, Sleeping Village, making for a truly unique Chicagoan experience.

Past musicians include Bon Iver, Dr. Dog, Father John Misty, Protomartyr, Cloud Nothings, Twin Shadow, Neon Indian, Sharon Van Etten, Atlas Sound, and many more. Past comedians include Hannibal Buress, Tim Heidecker, Cameron Esposito, Natasha Leggero, Todd Barry, Nikki Glaser, and others. This independently run music festival aims to be one of the safest, most welcoming, and affordably priced in the country.

Stay tuned for added artists and more festival activity announcements.
