Jessica Faulkner, a Chicago Park District spokesperson, confirmed the move to multiple news outlets earlier today, citing the festival had been granted a “conditional permit” at the park, located at 6401 S. Stony Island Ave.
The move is likely only temporary and is necessary due to the Copa America Centenario soccer tournament’s occupancy of Soldier Field throughout much of June.
Although typically held the second weekend of June, dates for the 2016 festival have not yet been revealed. According to the Chicago Tribune, permit applications in the city’s data portal cover dates of May 30 through June 16.
A spokesperson for festival organizer React Presents told Billboard they plan to release an official announcement tomorrow.
