The 3rd Annual Country LakeShake is Coming to Northerly Island

Grab Your Boots, Y’all!

Tired of trekking to Wisconsin to enjoy a summer country music festival? Well, no shoes, no shirt, no problem, Chicago country music fans. Country LakeShake is coming this June. Known as Windy City LakeShake for the past two years, Country LakeShake is coming back to Huntington Bank Pavillion at Northerly Island for its third year from June 23 – 25. No camping required (or allowed) but there will be plenty of great music.

Country LakeShake also has a Blackhawks bar, plenty of concert tees and other apparel for sale, a vertigo swing, and more! The festival is rain or shine and taking place on the lakefront in late June, there might be a southern breeze to keep everyone cool.


The main stage will be home to headliners, Thomas Rhett, Miranda Lambert, and Rascal Flatts. On the other side of the pavilion, check out the Next From Nashville stage to see some future country music stars.
