  • Golden age hip-hop icon Bobbito Garcia will be quite busy during this year's Silver Room Block Party.

Today the organizers of the Silver Room Block Party announced the full lineup for their 15th blowout. Its three outdoor stages will present the likes of foundational Chicago hip-hop producer the Twilite Tone, classic-house veteran Ron Trent, hip-hop icon Bobbito Garcia (of beloved 90s New York radio program The Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Show), and singular singer, producer, and polymath Georgia Ann Muldrow.  Eight indoor venues, including the Silver Room and the Promontory, will also play host to live performances. The Silver Room Block Party takes place Saturday, July 21, in Hyde Park, and this year it includes movies too—the Harper Theater will screen five of them, including the Chicago premiere of Garcia's autobiographical documentary, Rock Rubber 45s. The fest has even organized a series of basketball events, including a three-point drill run by former Chicago Bull Craig Hodges and an exhibition game with Garcia.

Music remains the heart of the Silver Room Block Party, though, and we've got the full lineup of performances below. Organizers expect 30,000 to 35,000 people to attend, so plan for crowds when you think about how long it'll take you to get somewhere. You can also watch Morgan Elise Johnson's video of last year's Silver Room Block Party at the bottom of this post. The festivities begin at noon, though set times are subject to change—visit the Silver Room Block Party's site for updates.

Update: The initial Silver Room Block Party press release left out two venues: Jojayden Handmade and Hyde Park Records. That information has been added to the lineup below.
