A new festival came into full bloom this past weekend in Chicago. Sacred Rose, held Aug. 26-28 at SeatGeek Stadium in Bridgeview, was a promised “choose your own” musical adventure with dedicated stages for fans of jam bands, Americana, psych rock and other experimental styles.
The lineup featured The War on Drugs, Phil Lesh & Friends, Andy Frasco and the U.N., White Denim, and more. Cory Wong and Margo Price even appeared in a surprise set on Saturday, jamming with Goose. The festival outside the Windy City left fans with an experience that won’t soon be forgotten.

Relix Roadie Lounge
Behind the scenes, within the SeatGeek Stadium, artists rested, fiddled, jammed, reclined and connected – at the core of all the off-stage collaboration was the Roadie Lounge. Despite inclement weather, which forced Sunday’s jubilee to shutter early, the energy in the lounge remained electric in a way that lightning could not touch.
