The nation’s first dusk until dawn artistic celebration, transforms and illuminates the Loop one magical night a year.
Think you know the Loop? Think again.
Looptopia turns the city on its head on Friday, May 2 as the Loop is transformed into a sensory playground celebrating arts, culture, architecture and insomniacs alike.
This all night extravaganza paints the Loop as an urban wonderland – it’s trippy, it’s ethereal, and it’s all Chicago. 300 artists. 100 venues. 14 hours. More than 100,000 people. And a night you’ll never forget.
At Looptopia, artists and audiences ignite the heart of the city with energy and excitement. The Loop itself becomes a stage, a canvas, a muse and a carnival.
Urban Adventurers. City dwellers. Night Owls. Students. Couples. Families. Music fans. Circus lovers. There is truly something for everyone at Looptopia.
Inspired by "White Night" events in cities like Rome, Paris, and Madrid, Looptopia made its wildly successful debut as the first American event of its kind last year. And Looptopia 2008 is shaping up to be even more spectacular than the first.
Looptopia is energy. Exhilaration. The Loop abuzz with activity. It's the jolt of adrenaline you get when you discover the unexpected. It's uncovering art, music, dance, theater, excitement and joy around every corner. It's an all night celebration of the arts and of the Loop. And it's all for you, Chicago.
