This will be updated as they provide me with MORE. Just like the rest of the 175 festivals this website sponsors and writes about I shall be in constant contact with the organizers and update this article as I deem fit, so with that being said HERE WE GO….

The 2018 Moonrunners Music Festival this year is being offiically announced here on It takes place on May 4rth and 5th in Chicago Illinois at Reggies Rock Club ,and is an indoor two stage event. ALSO there is a  HUGE record store upstairs and the food is really good on the third floor.

There is an all you can eat buffet all day for one set price in the side bar, this past spring I went and it was really good food. You can read more about my trip to this festival in 2017 HERE. My daughter and I had a wonderful time up there, both stages had some truly awesome bands.

The official sponsoring hotel is the South Loop Hotel which is only about 5 blocks from Reggies. That folks is about the only nearby hotel that I have found so far. This is an indoor event so the rules of the festival are pretty much the rules of the venue, however like EVERY festival there is ONE main rule: Don’t be a dick.
