Chicago Entertainment Relief

Information For Artists by Artists

There are thousands of artists, musicians, DJs, and other entertainment acts in IL that are directly impacted by the mandatory bar and restaurant shut down. We are in a problematic situation where many of us rely heavily on work through these venues and as our sole income. We understand that these venues were mandated to shut down for everyone’s safety. As an industry, we agree with this and appreciate the city and state’s efforts in minimizing the risk for everyone.

So we created a website for entertainers impacted by the mandate and who might need additional resources. On this site, they can find information as discounted food from restaurants at a nearby area or information on financial relief among other resources – that website link is: Chicago Entertainment Relief dot com.

Stay safe and best of wishes to all!
