Out neo-soul musician Meshell Ndegeocello and LGBT hip-hop artist Taylor Bennett ( brother of Chance the Rapper ) are among the acts slated to perform at this year's Taste of Chicago on July 10-14, at the Petrillo Music Shell, 235 S. Columbus Dr.

Ndegeocello will perform Sunday, July 14, at 4:30 p.m. Her latest album, Ventriloquism, is a collection of 11 covers that include reimagined versions of "Waterfalls," "Smooth Operator" and a sultry rendition of "Private Dancer." R&B musician India.Arie will perform that same day.

Bennett will perform Friday, July 12, at 5:30 p.m. He has had tremendous success with the 2015 album Broad Shoulders, the 2017 album The Fader and the recent EP Be Yourself. The co-headliners that day will be revolutionary hip-hop act De La Soul ( known for the song "Me, Myself and I" ).

Some of the other artists slated to take the Petrillo stage include Courtney Barnett, Bomba Estereo, Cultura Profetica, De La Soul and Bilal.

There will also be a Goose Island Stage that will offer five days of performances by local up-and-coming and established artists. Just a few of those acts include The Ivy Ford Band, DJ Mike P, Afinca'o, Tatiana Hazel and Solow Redline.

Limited tickets are available for $50. New for 2019, Taste of Chicago food and beverage tickets can also be purchased in advance, at TasteOfChicago.us. The food and beverage tickets are sold in strips of 14 tickets for $10 and can be picked up on site. Admission to the Taste of Chicago and lawn seating is free.
