Windy City Happening: Dillo Day 2014 at Northwestern (PHOTOS)

Northwestern University's Mayfest organization hosted its 42nd annual Dillo Day along the shores of Lake Michigan last week to an estimated crowd of over 9,000 attendees.

OK Go, Chance the Rapper, and 2 Chainz headlined the music festival which also included local and student bands on the IndieU stage (a new addition for 2014), art installations, a playground, and a food truck compound featuring Giordano's Pizza, Cheesie's, and Chicago Cupcake.

Construction surrounding the Northwestern lakefill changed the layout of this year's Dillo Day prompting limited admittance to registered guests of Northwestern students and Evanston residents. A more stringent entrance policy allowed festival goers to enjoy the expanse of the festival grounds with more breathing room and less rowdy crowds typical of past Dillo Days.
