Once again it’s on! Our annual celebration of Dr. Dre and his legacy returns to Chicago’s Double Door for it’s 8th year. What began as one-off party in Minneapolis, it has since grown to include over a dozen major North American cities, with a roster of renowned DJs, Producers, and Artists uniting each year, all for the love of Dre. Discount presales are available NOW!
As our featured headliner for 2016, we’re excited to present Makaya McCraven + The Chronic. The idea of a session band of ‘Dre Day Players’ has floated around for awhile, but this year Makaya agreed make it a reality. If you’re unfamiliar with his work, as an accomplished Drummer / Producer his heady blend of Soul Jazz, Funk, and Hip-Hop fits perfectly within the smokey confines of Dr.Dre’s catalog.
Co-headlining is the DJ / Turntablist duo of Big Once and Trentino, collectively known as B.O.A.T.. As individuals they’re both accomplished artists having each won the Red Bull Thre3style US Titles. & Joining us once again for the Nate Dogg tribute is J.Arthur (of The WHOevers) and in the Door. No3 section of the venue, we’ll be transforming the space into a special West Coast / G-Funk edition of Original Rap Karaoke.
And as a bonus for the 1st 100 arrivals, we’re giving away exclusive souvenir Dre tees printed on-the-spot by Teetsy.com.
