The Bitter Jester Music Festival (BJMF) is the Midwest's largest professional music competition for emerging and rising-star musicians (bands and solo artists alike). The competition and concert series is built on a strong foundation of community and emboldening and empowering young performers at a critical time in their social and artistic development. The festival has four preliminary concerts on consecutive Fridays in the summer at Port Clinton Square in downtown Highland Park, IL, and a Grand Finale concert featuring the summer's All-Stars on Sunday, September 5, 2021.

A winner is selected each Friday by qualified judges to compete in the Grand Finale Concert along with four "Wild Card" performers selected by Bitter Jester staff. The Grand Finale leads up to a big fireworks display. Food, beer, and wine available at most concerts!
