The re-invented Marina City dove headfirst into the alternative pop scene in 2019. Within one year the quartet shared the stage with Judah and The Lion, Lovelytheband, Coin, and Joywave, sold-out their headliners, partnered with the Chicago Bulls and Chicago Bears, performed on WGN News, gained worldwide press, and landed both radio play and licensing spots on MTV.

Starlifter: U.S. Air Force Band
8:30 – 10:30 PM

Starlifter is a component of the United States Air Force Band of Mid-America, the musical ambassador of the Air Mobility Command. Formerly known as the Air Force Band of Mid-America, the Military Airlift Command Band, and the AMC Band of Mid-America, the United States Air Force band of Mid-America was established in 1942 at Jefferson Barracks, Missouri. Starlifter’s musical versatility provides exciting events for audiences overseas, our nation’s top leaders, festival-goers, and enthusiastic crowds at summer park concerts. In the tradition of their namesake, the C-141 Starlifter transport jet, this combo’s high-energy music transports its listeners to a higher plane.
