Dillo Day 2013 Description

Dillo Day - Concert | Festival | Music Festival | Special Event in Chicago.

Every year on the last Saturday of May, Northwestern University students on the north side of Chicago head to Dillo Day for an end of school year celebration and all-day music festival complete with performances by popular contemporary artists.

Dillo Day began in 1972 when Mayfest organizers decided to combine an Armadillo Day celebration held by students from Texas with May Day, which was a celebration of the University’s women. Today, Dillo Day is listed as one of Northwestern’s most notable traditions and features games, vendors, beautiful lakefront scenery, and of course, amazing music. Past Dillo Day performers include Cake, Arcade Fire, Ben Folds, B.o.B., Cold War Kids, and Kendrick Lamar, among others.

Dillo Day takes place on the Northwestern Lakefill, which is about a half-mile walk from the Davis Purple Line L station. Dillo Day tickets are only available to the Northwestern community and their registered guests.
