Windy City Smokeout returned to the United Center for another extended weekend of live country music performances from some of the biggest names in the genre. Boasting sets from Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson, Miranda Lambert, Sam Hunt and many more; 2022’s lineup is perhaps the festival’s best year.
Night one of the Chicago music and food festival was a great way to kick off the weekend. Fans made sure to get to the festival early to enjoy sets from Zach Bryan and Turnpike Troubadours, getting the stage set for the evening’s headliner, the legend himself, Willie Nelson.
