Full West Fest lineup: Mates of State, The Black Lips, Flosstradamus

Indie-pop duo Mates of State has been added to the final music lineup on Sunday for this year's West Fest in West Town, July 7-8, according to a news release announcing the full schedule. 

The festival, which includes music, family events and the area’s best restaurants, takes place July 7-8 on Chicago Avenue between Damen and Wood.

Along with the normal fest fare of neighborhood shops, restaurants and artists will be a handful of bands and DJs performing throughout the weekend on two stages. The Main Stage, curated by Empty Bottle Presents, includes headliners The Black Lips and Mates of State, as well as hot picks like Bad Veins and Crooked Fingers and Chicago favorites Pet Lions and Summer Girlfriends. On the BP DJ Stage, Chicago-based DJs Flosstradamus and house music producer Derrick Carter headline. 

Aside from the music stages--what the fest is really known for--are two "fests within a fest." Pup Fest and Kid Fest invite attendees to bring along their dogs and children for special activities and vendors.
