Tomorrow night the seventh edition of the annual punk-rock festival Ian's Party begins, and this year it features more than 40 bands in two venues over the course of three days. The event is no stranger to massive lineups. In earlier years even more bands played three different venues spread across downtown Elgin, but this is definitely the loftiest the roster has been since the party moved to Chicago three years ago.

The lineup is always a fun-as-hell mixed bag of grimy acts, and this year's includes old standbys like the Brokedowns—the best band out of the suburbs—who have played every Ian's Party to date, and local metal trio the Swan King, as well as some excellent out-of-towners like Wisconsin power-poppers Tenement and Ultra Bide, the long-running experimental punk trio out of south central Japan.

Full lineup, schedules, and ticket info after the jump.
