Summer in Chicago is all about outdoor concerts. The weather’s right, the days are long, and there’s plenty of live music to take in while you’re out of class. But some of those shows can be expensive, and a college student’s budget doesn’t always include deep pockets. Never fear: F Newsmagazine’s Nicole Demczuk, our resident concert-goer, went to some of the summer’s biggest concerts and festivals so you don’t have to! Turn up your speakers, browse through these photos, and it’ll be like you were there in the flesh. Buh-bye, FOMO!
