Anchoring the musical acts of the evening, American Indie Pop band Saint Motel and Chicago’s award-winning hip-hop artist Sir the Baptist will lead a more Chicago-centric event lineup of talent and hosts. Returning from Chi-Town Rising’s inaugural year, Chicago music talent and nightlife veteran DJ Sye Young will spin throughout the evening between musical performances starting at 8 p.m. at the event’s Countdown Stage on Upper Wacker Drive. Fan favorite Jim Cornelison will host the Countdown Stage and perform his signature song as America’s “anthem singer.”
