The 13th Annual Silver Room Sound System Block Party, presented by Downtown Hyde Park Chicago (Special Service Area #61) — "Freedom Love Joy Peace" — serves as a meeting point for the diversity that marks Chicago’s metropolis. "Freedom Love Joy Peace" exemplifies the power of community and the Arts by showcasing varied genres of music, visual arts and dance while merging individuals - engaging Chicago’s young and old alike, who join together to celebrate life.
In cooperation with The Frankie Knuckles Foundation, the Sound System Block Party will curate programming, installation, and staged performances in honor of this pioneer, his work and his influences. Since the passing of Frankie Knuckles two years ago, the music community worldwide has felt the loss of a great Man and his work, so in 2016 we want to bring the Founding Father of House Music’s legacy to back to Chicago where it all started.
