Across the country, Six Flags hosts the Live & Local music series.Although there is no monetary compensation for artists, Live & Local gives musicians a chance to be heard by thousands of potential fans. Six Flags Great America is among the many parks to participate in this exciting series.

Six Flags has spots for all artists, whether they are a single artist with a guitar, a new band just trying to get heard, or a cover band that likes to sing the great songs of this generation. Music of all genres is accepted. Six Flags will choose those artists which reflect diverse and family friendly material. The performance stages are located right inside the park at either the Mission Stage in the Southwest Territory, or the Beach Stage located in Hurricane Harbor.

Please note: Adult language is not permitted and will not be tolerated. Performance days are available in May through September. Artists will play 5 half hour sets throughout the afternoon starting at 12:30, 1:30, 2:30, 4:00, and 5:00. This is an unpaid performance, but 10 free tickets shall be issued upon completion of 5 sets. Merchandise sales are allowed, and artists shall retain 100% of their profits. Items must be family friendly, and in good taste. Six Flags retains the right to review and approve/disapprove of any merchandise.

Six Flags Great America will provide an adequate stage and power. Bands will provide all sound and needed backline equipment, and will also do all the setup and load-in themselves. Stage hands will not be provided. ItÂ’s suggested that you bring a push cart, as you cannot pull your car into the park or to the stage due to safety concerns. The band and one technician will be escorted into the park free of charge for their performance only. There is a discounted ticket available if the band or guests wish to enjoy the park before or after the show.
