Interested in performing at Chicago’s Airports?

The #ChiOnTheFly entertainment series from the Chicago Department of Aviation hosts 100+ music, dance, and family-friendly performances at Midway and O’Hare each year! Performers are paid at a starting rate of $500 based on group size.

Scheduled around holidays and other busy travel times, performances are typically held on Thursdays and Fridays, with additional availability during peak travel periods.

All interested performers must apply using the link below. Applications must be completed in full – any application missing necessary information may not be considered.

Please note: Applying to perform within Chicago’s airport system does not confirm a performance. If you are selected as a potential performer, we will contact you to inquire about performance availability.
