On Wednesday morning Kanye West announced a mysterious "Project Wyoming" with tickets to two events, one in Miami and another in Chicago, placed on sale. The event appeared to be a way to replicate the experience many people had on a ranch in Wyoming last week, where Kanye played new album ye to a selection of friends, family, media, and influencers.
As Pitchfork reports, the Chicago party took place at Kuipers Family Farm in Maple Park, Illinois, roughly 55 miles west of Chicago. The party involved a bonfire and a playback of ye. Ticket holders also received the opportunity to purchase exclusive merchandise.
This Friday, Kanye is due to release Kids See Ghosts, a collaborative album made with Kid Cudi. The duo will host a listening party for the album in Los Angeles on Thursday night. The event will once again be streamed live via the WAV app.
