Named after Jay Pritzker, famously known for owning the Hyatt Hotels, the Jay Pritzker Pavilion is a bandshell in Millennium Park located on the south side of Randolph Street. Designed by architect Frank Gehry over the course of five years, the Pavilion was finally unveiled in July of 2004.

Since then, summer concerts in the park in Chicago have never been the same. Whether you pack a picnic while watching a classical performance from the big screen on the Great Lawn, or take a seat at the front of the stage to enjoy an indie rock performance, you’re going to be blown away by the amazing visuals and acoustics of this venue. With views of the skyline, this venue looks sophisticated and brings underdog music genres to the masses throughout the summer and warm, Autumn evenings.
