Mayor Lori Lightfoot is again cracking down on large parties after the city shut down a trap music warehouse event in the West Humboldt Park neighborhood over the weekend, officials said.

The city shut down a party at 4106 W. Chicago Ave. on Friday night that was scheduled to go until 4 a.m. the next morning, Business Affairs and Consumer Protection Commissioner Rosa Escareno told reporters.

“We want all party planners or partygoers to be warned — large events and gatherings that violate the health order put our entire community at risk and will not be tolerated,” Escareno said.

Escareno’s department will team with the building, fire and police departments to step up enforcement actions against large parties.

City officials took issue with the trap warehouse party, which was promoted via Event Brite, because it was violating anti-coronavirus social distancing rules. Trap is a subgenre of hip hop music.

Escareno said the city shut the party down early in the night.

Large unauthorized parties were a major problem for the city earlier this year, as officials scrambled to get COVID-19′s spread under control. A house party crammed with celebrants went viral in the spring, leading Lightfoot to warn, “We are never getting out of this” if people keep holding big illegal parties.

In recent weeks, the city has seen a bump in coronavirus cases among young people, also spiking concern.
