The wait is finally over for the 2017 Country LakeShake Festival lineup. Since December the festival's organizers have been saying the lineup will be announced in January, and this morning they finally made good on that promise. It was revealed today that headlining the three-day Chicago country music festival will be Thomas Rhett, Miranda Lambert, and Rascal Flatts.
This won't be the first time Thomas Rhett is performing at LakeShake. At last year's festival Thomas Rhett performed an afternoon set on the same day that Jason Aldean closed out the weekend. This time around, Rhett is headlining the festival on Friday, June 23.
Only 16 acts were announced today, which means more will be revealed at a later time. What we do know is that headlining LakeShake 2017 on Saturday, June 24 is "Vice" singer Miranda Lambert. Then, on Sunday, June 25 Rascal Flatts will close out the festival.
Tickets for Country LakeShake 2017 go on sale Feb. 3 at 10 a.m. Central Time. Just like last year, there's going to be single day and 3-day passes available to buy. Along with general admission passes, there's also going to be VIP and Grandstand Reserved passes. All passes can be bought via the festival's website here.
The 2017 Chicago Country LakeShake Festival will take place June 23-25 at Huntington Bank Pavilion. To those wondering where that is, it's the same place the festival happened in 2016. The only difference is the name. Formerly it was called the FirstMerit Bank Pavilion, but it recently went through a name change and is now the Huntington Bank Pavilion.
