Following the success of Windy City LakeShake’s inaugural year, even larger crowds are being forecasted after over 35,000 fans converged to Chicago’s scenic FirstMerit Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island for the first-year of festivities. The three-day, two-stage country music festival will return on June 17-19 with superstars Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Tim McGraw, Brooks & Dunn as well as Sam Hunt, Thomas Rhett and more slated to play the festival’s second year, set against the city’s spectacular skyline. Festival passes will go on-sale on Jan. 29 at 10am CT at LakeShakeFestival.com.
Festival-goers will be able enjoy Windy City LakeShake’s sweeping panoramic views of Chicago’s lakefront while experiencing a first-class lineup that also includes A Thousand Horses, Chris Janson, Jana Kramer, Jon Pardi, Granger Smith feat Earl Dibbles, Jr., Travis Tritt, Charlie Worsham and more. Attendees will also have the option to indulge with VIP packages available offering access to the shaded VIP Lounge with private cash bar, premium elevated viewing, lounge and reserved seating as well as air-conditioned restroom facilities, in-seat wait service, a dedicated festival concierge, an express festival entrance and more.
“Being from Chicago, I’m extremely personally invested in this festival,” said Brian O’ Connell Live Nation President of Country Touring. “We want to make Chicago proud and I think coming back in our second year with a stacked lineup like this is a pretty good way to kick things off. I’m beyond ecstatic to bring this insane amount of talent to my hometown.”
