Chicago, the birthplace of House Music, is also home to what is arguably the most famous House Music event-and the world’s largest single day house festival -the Chosen Few Old School Reunion. Now going into its 30th year, this family-style picnic event has become an icon in Chicago.

When tickets go on sale very early on the morning of the event- never more than two hours pass until the event completely sells out. Attendance is capped, and admission ranges from $10 general admission to $150 for VIP packages.

Who are the Chosen Few? They are the originators of House Music. The event features some of the greatest House Music originators- such as DJ’s Wayne Williams, Terry Hunter, Alan King, Tony Hatchett, Andre Hatchett, Jesse Saunders and many other greats. Some of these DJ’s have been spinning this music since the late ‘70’s and early ‘80s- before the genre even had a formal name. These are the true founders of House Music.

House Music is the star of this show, naturally, but the event also features a number of top, name national R&B headliners who each play short five or six song sets. The event also offers a variety of food offerings and cold beer- rounding out the whole experience to be a little slice of heaven for lovers and followers of this music. All in all, the event delivers 12 hours of high quality music and performances.

The audience demographics are a unique combination of upscale, educated, established white collar professionals, and young, urban music aficionados.
