Chance The Rapper’s Magnificent Coloring Day
The first ever major festival held at U.S. Cellular Field, the White Sox’s Stadium in Chicago, IL.
Chance the Rapper’s Magnificent Coloring Day was the first ever major festival held at U.S. Cellular Field, the White Sox’s stadium in Chicago, IL. With collaborators and friends like Kanye West, Skrillex, John Legend, Alicia Keys, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Young Thug, Tyler the Creator, Lil Uzi Vert, and more, this record-breaking 48,000 person sold-out special event marked a milestone both for the stadium and for the artists involved.
Magnificent Coloring Day was Chance the Rapper’s first name-brand festival. With the powerful momentum of this very special event, we hope to see him bring many more people together.
“Take it back to the old things that matter” is another way of articulating what an artist’s mission is… Amid guns and hopelessness, this music and this festival were designed to serve as a counter. The diversity of the audience and the lineup — and the messages delivered from the stage — spoke loudly. On his latest album, Chance declares, “All we got is music,” but he also has helped build a community to go with it.

A taut cross-genre festival that was Chance the Rapper’s love letter to Chicago’s South Side, and also a display of his influence in this city.
