Addams / Medill Park has a storied history with SAMF. From 2016-2018, the festival took place at this location near downtown with the Chicago skyline in the background before moving to the suburbs of Illinois. This year marks SAMF’s return to Chicago.
Last year’s first-ever virtual SAMF, which featured 22 artists performing across the country as the world practiced social distancing, garnered over three million livestreams, 2.5 million impressions, and 69,000 live engagements over the LiveXLive platform. Corona was the official beer and seltzer partner for last year’s virtual SAMF live stream.
