This event is being held at the new Riverfront Theater (650 W. Chicago) September 21-23.

Music

Each evening, Brilliant Corners showcases original musical voices from across genres, featuring performances by legendary and ground-breaking artists. See the full schedule.

Late Night Comedy

Late nights after the music, the Brilliant Corners stage will be handed over to comedians. This portion of the event is FREE. See details aboutFriday and Saturday’s shows.

Saturday afternoon El Circo Cheapo, Chicago’s very own collection of world-class circus performers, presents innovative circus performances. Read more.


We're particularly stoked to see Dizzy Lizzy and
