Back Lot Bash is held over two weekends during Pride in Chicago and lays claim to being the most popular outdoor lesbian festival in the Midwest. Started in 2004, it usually takes over an outdoor venue in Andersonville, outside the mainstream celebrations in Boystown. Female DJs and performers the likes of Lisa Loeb, JD Samson, Ruby Rose, Nina Sky, Antigone Rising, Cat Fight and Fembot have taken to the stage, and Family Fest activities were added to the programming in 2013 as a meeting place for families with same-sex parents.
