Salt Shed

Historical Morton Salt complex transformed into Chicago’s latest large live performance space with Elation and L-Acoustics.

The Morton Salt complex in Chicago had been in operation for nearly a century before it closed in 2015. Now, after a multi-million dollar renovation, the building has been transformed into a multi-purpose venue for live music and other events, named the Salt Shed. Boasting state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems, including a comprehensive Elation stage lighting rig from Upstaging and a new L-Acoustics K2 professional audio system, designed and installed by local L-Acoustics Certified Provider integrator (CPi) OSA International, the Salt Shed has quickly become the hot new performance space in Chicago, hosting acts such as Iggy Pop, Bikini Kill, The Roots and Nils Frahm.
