On September 21, 2014, Chicago hip-hop artists Common and Rhymefest joined together to create AAHH! Fest, a one-day music festival hosted in Union Park featuring Kanye West, Twista, MC Lyte, Jay Electronica, and performances by local community members. The festival debuted with performances by local musical groups including dancing, singing, and rapping. Later in the afternoon Jay Electronica kicked off the headliner part of the show. All the proceeds will of the festival will go towards The Common Ground Foundation, Donda’s House, Arts Education in Chicago Public Schools, and the Youth Jobs Initiative.
