In two weeks time, the city of Bridgeview, IL will be transformed into a vast hard rock landscape as the world’s best rock, metal and punk acts descend upon the Toyota Park for three days of chaos. We’ve scoured the line-up, and selected six acts we think you need to check out this summer. We’ve not told you why; instead, we’re leaving you with one video per band which should be self-explanatory enough.
