Emerge Winnetka Shines Spotlight on Tomorrow’s Top Artists
@properties is proud to sponsor Winnetka’s fifth-annual music festival, returning this Saturday with a new name and new venue. Formerly known as the Winnetka Music Festival, Emerge Winnetka features an electrifying lineup of the country’s top up-and-coming artists, carefully curated and produced by Val Haller, CEO and founder of Valslist Music.
Emerging artists and bands from a variety of genres will take the stage at the Skokie Playfields on Hibbard Road, including country duo Walker County, ’80s pop-inspired dance rock group Argonaut & Wasp and singer-songwriter Spencer Ludwig, who’s performed with Dua Lipa, Foster the People and Fitz and the Tantrums. The event will close out with a “disco-infused after show” featuring DJ Squaropolis.
Guests of past Winnetka Music Festival events will note several changes designed to ensure concertgoers’ safety. The new location offers more space to comfortably enjoy the concert, and the event has a cap on ticket sales, following state guidelines. In addition, all eventgoers must have proof of a COVID-19 vaccine or a negative COVID test to attend.
To get a taste of artists from this year and past years of the Winnetka Music Festival, check out a Spotify playlist exclusively curated by Haller for @properties.
General admission adult tickets can be purchased online for $60, or at the event (pending availability) for $75. Discounted youth and child tickets are also available. With each purchase, you can select one of 11 charities to which Valslist Music will make a $5 donation. For more information and tickets, visit emergewinnetka.com.
