Chance The Rapper Plans A ‘Magnificent’ Music Festival With Lil Wayne, Skrillex, And More

This is about to be one hell of a homecoming

When Chance the Rapper announced his Magnificent Coloring tour in June, a date in his hometown of Chicago was mysteriously MIA. Turns out, 79th Street’s favorite son had much, much grander plans for his homecoming.

On Monday, Chance announced Magnificent Coloring Day, a one-day music festival at U.S. Cellular Field, home of his beloved Chicago White Sox (he’s such a fan, he once redesigned the team’s hats).

The mini-fest goes down September 24 and its lineup is stacked — Lil Wayne, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Skrillex, 2 Chainz, Young Thug, and Tyler, the Creator are all performing in addition to Chance. A coloring book–style video that Chance posted also promises a “very special guest” as the evening’s host.

Magnificent Coloring Day is in support of Chance’s latest mixtape, Coloring Book, which we’ve thoroughly gushed about here at MTV News. So you should listen to it, if you haven’t already (preferably while coloring).
