Nerdcore? Check. Partying? Check. Convention? Check.
Ever wanted to watch and listen to your favorite bands while hanging and enjoying music with them? Well you can do that at NPC Chicago 2022. We’re building off of the success of NPC 2019 to bring an even bigger show and we can’t wait to celebrate with you!
To sum it up: NPC is a 2-day event consisting of a Nerdcore concert AND meet and greet with all of your favorite Nerdcore musicians. Attendance will be limited at 400 as well, so you’ll get plenty of facetime with your favorite YouTube personalities!
Who’s not gonna be there is the question! Take a deep breath, Here are all the attendees: JT Music, Rockit Gaming, Nerdout, Dan Bull, Neebs Gaming, Fabvl, Divide Music, DaddyPhatSnaps, GameboyJones, Bonecage, Zach Boucher, Cam Steady, Rustage, The Stupendium, DAGames, CK9C, CG5, Shwabadi and more!!!
NPC 2019 was a deal too good to pass up. And this year we’re sticking to that idea of value. So while the show grows in size, it will also grow in length. We’ll have a longer stage show and another whole day to meet you and hang out!
General Admission $60 – Access to both days of event!
VIP $120 – Early access to both days of event + Loot tote bag + VIP Section + 2 drink tickets
Yes! The event is meant to be enjoyed by all ages. However, it’s not exclusively a kid friendly event per se, it’s a concert and a celebration. Alcohol will be on the premises and there will be cursing.
We HIGHLY recommend ride sharing to and from the venue so you can enjoy the night worry free! Or utilize any of Chicago’s public transit.
Well yeah, it’s a party! Drinks available for purchase if you exhaust your drink tickets. Sodas and water will be available as well for anyone younger than 21. We are arranging a food truck to be outside the venue and there are great food options close by the venue! The Day 1 event will have drinks and we’re partnering with neighboring restaurants for food options. There are awesome spots literally next door and across the street from Emporium!
The event is August 5th and 6th in Chicago. August 5th will be the meet and greet hangout at Emporium Arcade and Bar at Wicker Park from 12:30 pm to 6:30 pm (divided into VIP and General Admission time slots). August 6th will be the concert at Lincoln Hall from 5 pm to 9 pm.

No. Unfortunately tickets are non-refundable. As space is limited, make sure you don’t waste a spot by not attending after purchasing a ticket.
[NOTE}: Should the event be postponed or cancelled due to COVID-19 related circumstances, we’ll take care of you by allowing refunds or transferring the ticket(s).
As of early March 2022, the venues require proof of Vaccination OR a negative Covid test 72 hours prior to August 6th. Masks are suggested, but not required. As always with this Covid situation we’ve been living through, things are subject to change and are very likely to (for the better we anticipate!). But as of now, that’s what they are.
For Day 1 of the event, Emporium Arcade Bar is a one story venue that should have no limitations in the ability to get around. For Day 2, Lincoln Hall is a two story venue that does have an elevator. The balcony section will likely be the best spot to get a view of the stage seated. At Lincoln Hall, the concert floor also has a ramp and is fully wheelchair accessible if you prefer.
