Southwest Airlines Community

Chicago Midway’s Blues Lounge


Southwest Airlines is celebrating the 31st Annual Chicago Blues Festival by bringing rhythm and blues to Chicago Midway Airport!  On Tuesday, June 10, Chicago Midway transformed into the Southwest Airlines Blues Lounge to kick off the Blues Festival.  Hometown favorite, The Matthew Skoller band, took to the stage bringing the blues to Customers traveling to and from the Windy City. Southwest’s purpose is to connect people to what’s important in their lives and this is one way we’re doing that. We know you LUV Southwest Airlines, but we also know you LUV the blues and that’s why we are the official airline of the Chicago Blues Festival.  The free festival kicks off today in Grant Park, where you’ll be able to hear some of the nation’s top artists throughout the three-day festival.  While there, make sure to stop by the Southwest Airlines Blues Lounge to relax and recharge while taking in the tunes.  Throughout the weekend, you’ll get the chance to talk to some of your favorite artists and even register to win a special getaway package for two to Memphis, a Southwest destination rich in the blues heritage! This is one of the special partnerships between the City of Chicago and Southwest Airlines.  We are also proud partners of the city’s Taste of Chicago, Bike Week, and Downtown Sounds.
