56 Music fix

Local Artists / Local Venues  3 Days of Non-Stop Music

August 20th-22nd 2021

Your Neighbors Rock!

COVID 19 Update:

2020 56 Music Fix is cancelled.

See you next year! 

Pandemic. Quarantine. 

Worry for our parents and grandparent's health and for friends who've fallen ill. We shelter in place and wear a mask to the grocery store and converted-to-carry-out places.

We are indebted to essential workers keeping our lives sane and for medical personnel facing unbelievable stresses and sacrifice. 

Oh, and there's no live music. 

 

 

Created by- and for- the great residents of Mt. Prospect, a group of local friends & musicians notorious for making Big Plans were excited to bring Year Three to town, but year three will hopefully be in 2021.

 

Regional bands of all sizes and genres play throughout Mt Prospect's terrific bars, restaurants and shops over one amazing summer weekend.


With the support of the Mount Prospect Chamber of Commerce, local business owners, and many amazing artists and musicians, we present the

56 Music Fix

A Village-Wide Celebration of Music, Art & Food!


Thank you for being a part of this adventure and supporting the incredibly talented people that live and play here!

The 56 Music Fix Committee received the Hometown Award at Mt Prospect's Shining Star Gala for making Mt Prospect a better place to live! We can't thank you enough for rocking with us!

(Psst: our zip code is 60056 & a Facebook page touting local businesses called "In the 56" inspired our name).
