BENTLEY, FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE, BRAD PAISLEY AND MORE KICKING OFF
FESTIVAL’S FIRST YEAR
Highlights At Three-Day, Two-Stage Country Music Festival Include Awe-Inspiring Sets,
A Visit From The Stanley Cup And Coming Out On Top Despite Inclement Weather
TN – June 22, 2015 – The inaugural Windy City LakeShake rocked
Northerly Island in Chicago, IL this past weekend with many highlights
across the three-day festival with over 35,000 fans in attendance.
Friday’s headliner Dierks Bentley wowed the eager crowd with his
hit-filled set and brought out some surprise guests during the encore of
his No. one song “Drunk On A Plane.” “Sometimes you’re watching Dierks
Bentley perform at LakeShake 2015 and sometimes the Stanley Cup
champions storm the stage with the Cup during it. That happened
tonight,” raved a stunned RedEye Chicago attending the country music superstar’s headlining set.
Heavy thunderstorms postponed festival activities on Saturday night, but
Brad Paisley graciously stayed an extra day to keep the party going on
Sunday adding to the already colossal final night lineup which included
headliners Florida Georgia Line.
“As a native Chicagoan myself, Windy City LakeShake means the world to
me,” said Brian O’ Connell Live Nation President of Country Touring.
“The atmosphere in the crowd and backstage across the weekend was
electric and while no first year of a festival is without its hiccups I
am so thankful for the fans, the artists, my team, THE CITY OF Chicago
and a special shout out to Brad Paisley for staying and playing on
Sunday night, making this weekend one for the books and ending the
festival with a serious bang!”
