Just outside of Chicago, Highland Park’s Ravinia Festival has announced its amazing cast of artists for its 2017 lineup. Of the many performers that will hit the stage at Ravinia this year are Common, Willie Nelson, Aretha Franklin, Sheryl Crow, OneRepublic, The Beach Boys, John Legend, Sammy Hagar, TLC, Blondie, Garbage, John Mellencamp, Pentatonix, Fitz & The Tantrums and many more.

Ravinia’s 2017 season will kick off this June and will last through the middle of September, and if you haven’t had the chance to attend a Ravinia show in the past, we certainly recommend it. Unlike all other festivals, Ravinia puts as much emphasis on the concert experience as the talent artists who perform at the festival, where many in attendance don’t experience the shows from a seat in the amphitheater, rather they lay down a blanket and bring their best lawn chairs and picnic baskets, while they enjoy the sounds throughout the park grounds.

Fans can visit Ravinia’s official website for the festival’s complete calendar and ticket information.
