Live Music

If you want to experience live music, look no further than Navy Pier. For decades, music has remained an essential part of the Pier’s lifeblood.

A stroll around the Pier is like a trip through a giant streaming service that stretches out onto Lake Michigan. From classic rock to reggae, heavy metal to hip-hop, big band to blues—not to mention Motown, folk, country and jazz—you can enjoy almost any music genre on any given day at Navy Pier. Some of Chicago’s top musicians and most popular bands perform here because we have some of the best live music venues in Chicago.

About the Festival

LatiNxt Music Festival’s mission is to strengthen connection, increase exposure and foster conversations within the Latinx music industry.

Focusing specifically on artists who are pushing the sound forward and reinventing tradition, the festival is a music showcase and convening of creatives leading Latinx culture. Started in 2018, the festival has booked a variety of international artists and has begun connecting artist communities in the Latin American diaspora.

LatiNxt promises to be a platform for the discovery of emerging and cutting edge talent, as well as a national hub for industry leaders to cultivate the connections and grow the ideas that continue to strengthen Latinx art and culture globally.
