General: LakeShake is an annual music festival produced by Live Nation in Chicago, Illinois. The festival takes place at Chicago’s Northerly Island (Lake Michigan) over the span of 3 days. The festival features many popular country music artists (appealing more to the millennial crowd), while sticking to its roots by including a few “old school” favorites like Travis Tritt and Brooks & Dunn. The festival also is showcasing other activities such as Vertigo Swing, LakeShake Field Fun, The Blackhawk Experience, Bud Light Beer Garden, Henna Envy, The Market and more! If you want to get an idea of where things will be, click here to view the festival map.
