After a critically acclaimed run in New York, Atlas Obscura is bringing Into the Veil to Chicago's historic Graceland Cemetery. Team Gregula vill be in attendance vith the mere mortals to cover this unique opportunity of valking in the darkness alongside the deceased. Such a regular daily activity for us. Yet it vill be a truly memorable evening for all veteran Children of the Night and inexperienced nocturnal newbies alike to enjoy.
On the first night of fall, immerse yourself in an ethereal evening of interactive performance, live music and visual storytelling. Chase a single flickering light or follow the distant sound of a bell deep into the hallowed grounds to discover one surprise after another. Rated highly by The New York Times.
Every guest vill encounter Into the Veil differently. Vith only your curiosity to guide you, you’ll vander the cemetery’s candlelit pathvays to find dozens of intimate hex-periences hidden among the mausoleums, crypts, and headstones.
Throughout the evening, stumble on incredible performances and installations in unexpected environments. Highlights vill include Xiu Xiu (Solo), Lonnie Holley, Steve Hauschildt, The Apprehension Engine, Bri Luna (The Hoodwitch), Eric Dyer, Synapse Arts and more to be discovered.
