The racing giant revealed on Wednesday that The Chainsmokers, Miranda Lambert, The Black Crowes and Charley Crockett will perform in the NASCAR Cup Series Chicago Street Race from July 1-2.
“The Chicago Street Race is truly the first two-day sporting and entertainment event of its kind in NASCAR’s 75-year history,” Chicago Street Race President Julie Giese said in a statement. “We’re proud to welcome superstars The Chainsmokers, Miranda Lambert, The Black Crowes and Charley Crockett as we reimagine the NASCAR experience in the heart of downtown Chicago over the 4th of July weekend.”
The performances will be part of a two-day festival over the bank holiday weekend.

The event has already released two-day reserved tickets starting at $465, offering reserved seating “and a wide variety of premium experiences.”
All tickets will include access to races and concerts.
