Yachtish Music Festival,

Chicago, Illinois, United States Chicago, Illinois, United States

  • About the event

    Yachtish is an R&B, House, and Hip-Hop music festival launching on August 13th, 2023. It is held with Black Yacht Weekend, attracting hundreds of attendees each year.


    An adventure-filled weekend will culminate with a music festival celebrating black aquatic experiences. As part of our summer programming, we will provide a space for diverse patrons to explore the culture of Chicago and dive into a next-level musical experience.

    In addition to providing a variety of entertainment, this festival will benefit the neighborhood in the following ways:

    • New job opportunities at the festival - dozens or even hundreds of people are
    • required to fulfill temporary roles, including security guards, box office attendants,
    • stagehands, medics, and operations managers—to name a few.
    • Opportunities for small and black-owned businesses.
    • Provide a boost in local spending.
    • Boost social capital for black-owned vendors in Chicago.

    Why should you sponsor?

    Our sponsors will enjoy a wealth of brand exposure opportunities. Depending on the sponsorship package you choose, you can expect your brand's name and logo to be featured on The Yachtish music festival websites, social media posts, emails, apparel, and merchandise before and during the event.
