John Summit’s Future Burns Bright at “Summertime Chi” Hometown Pop-Up

John Summit's unrelenting tear across the festival circuit paused for a brief moment in the producer's hometown—and an intimate gathering of fans bore witness to what's next for the meteoric producer. 

Heading into the holiday weekend, Summit's game-time pop-up show announcement—made in partnership with Chicago's Auris Presents—shows just how far he's come in a short period of time. 

The surprise outing sold out in mere minutes, even with a two-ticket purchase maximum. Additionally, a less than desirable weather forecast didn't deter fans who filled the Space Stage Studios lot for supporting acts Mary Droppinz, Lee Foss and D&S.

Now a Miami resident, Summit hasn't shied away from his roots in the birthplace of house music. In fact, the decision to open up with "In Chicago" felt like a welcome victory lap for the party-starting superstar. Summit additionally illuminated his burgeoning tastemaker status by playing new hits from his Off The Grid label, including Mau P's titillating house banger "Your Mind Is Dirty."
