Many of the unplugged performers will play multiple sets to allow attendees to catch their favorite artists while enjoying the neighborhoods many distinctive shops along the Adams Avenue business corridor.
Adams Avenue Unplugged will be held along a two-mile stretch of Adams Avenue, from University Heights on the west end, through Normal Heights, and into parts of Kensington on the east. Since street parking is limited, organizers will provide free trolley service along Adams Avenue, during the event, as well as a bike valet service. In addition, mass transit bus service (MTS #2 & 11) will also be available since Adams Avenue will be open to traffic. We encourage festival-goers to wear comfortable shoes and enjoy the music and vibe that Adams Avenue offers.
