Breakaway Music Festival headliner Chance the Rapper took a step in a direction a lot of artists are taking recently by announcing his own Festival in Chicago today via twitter. Magnificent Coloring Day follows his third project Coloring Book which was the first release to chart on Billboard based solely on streaming numbers.

The Festival will take place at US Cellular Field, the home of the White Sox, right in the middle of his Magnificent Coloring Tour. Major move from this mixtape artist are happening, and on his own terms it looks like. Magnificent Coloring Day will bring a flood of talent to the Chicago area as Skrillex, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Tyler the Creator, Young Thug, John Legend, Alicia Keys and Lil Uzi Vert are set to perform. Chance has also promised a very special guest who will serve as the host for the event (high key wishing it was me).
Two big artists I could speculate being this special host would be Justin Bieber, who featured on Chance’s “Juke Jam”. Another possibility could be Chicago’s own, Kanye West. West used Chance the Rapper many a time on the production of The Life of Pablo and features as well on Coloring Book.
