L.I.V.E. at the Chicago Podcast Festival!

Locked into Vacancy is lucky enough to be participating in this years Chicago Podcast Festival at The Chicago Theatre Works.

This is your opportunity to take your favorite podcasts out of your ears and put them IRL, all while exploring new ones. Throughout the five venues, you’ll witness entertaining and interesting shows for an exciting night out. The venues are relaxed atmospheres, so come as you are. You will enjoy time with the people who bring you joy and meet other people that share your passion.

After casting a wide net to plant its flag last year, the Chicago Podcast Festival will focus more on the hometown heroes of Chicago’s independent podcast scene in 2017, while still including some of your national favorites.

Ticket prices vary show-by-show but mostly fall between $10 and $40 – dependent on venue, and artist.


Locked into Vacancy Entertainment (L.I.V.E.) is an audio variety show in the style of old time radio. Foley artists share the stage and create sound effects that transport the audience to the time and place of each serial. L.I.V.E. encourages its audience to participate in each performance providing laughs, gasps, and applause. Featuring two original serials:

Clark & Belmont in “Get Lucky”
