Chicago’s New Venue, RADIUS Locks In Carl Cox, Tchami, Dillon Francis & More


Arriving in early 2020, Chicago is getting a brand new music venue that is as exciting as its opening lineup. Sitting amidst Chicago’s “coolest” neighborhood, RADIUS takes over an old steel factory in Pilsen. This 55,000 square foot event space has a capacity ranging from 2,500 to 3,800 people. Priming for a grandiose opening, RADIUS has acquired a packing lineup for its opening weeks. Opening with acts like Dillon Francis, Carl Cox, Tchami and Lil Wayne, you can grab tickets as soon as Friday, December 13 at 12PM CST.

Nick Karounos, RADIUS’ owner and operator, has been involved in Chicago’s music events and nightlife scene for the past 20-years. Karounos is no stranger when it comes to owning and operating nightclubs. He has been the owner and operator for Concord Music Hall, the MID, and PRYSM Nightclub. RADIUS is located at 640 Cermak Road, Chicago IL, transforming an old steel factory into a modern, artistic space. Three large murals created by Lefty Out There, Thank you X, and NYCHOS adorn the exterior of the building, allowing RADIUS to become a wonderful addition to the art-filled city of Pilsen.

“This project has been 4 years in the making and we are beyond excited to show Chicago and the rest of the world what we have built for music lovers of all genres.”
