Windy City Smokeout came to a close last night after a memorable performance from country music’s Miranda Lambert, so to look back on the epic weekend we are sharing moments from a couple of our favorite sets, Kip Moore’s supporting performance on Sunday night and Sam Hunt’s headlining set on Saturday.
The Smokeout will return in 2023, and fans don’t even have to wait for a full year as the festival will take place on July 13-16, 2023. Stay tuned for the full lineup and more details.

Country fans in the Midwest can celebrate as Milwaukee’s Summerfest has announced it’s third country music headliner of 2020. Sam Hunt will join the previous American Family Insurance Amphitheater headliners, Luke Bryan and Chris Stapleton, as well as Justin Bieber, Halsey, Guns N Roses and more.
Three big headliners remain for the festival and Wisconsin music fans are also awaiting the release of Summerfest’s ground stage headliners. Hunt’s forthcoming performance is part of his Southside Summer Tour and he will be joined by Kip Moore and more (no pun intended).
Kicking off this summer, country music’s Sam Hunt has revealed his huge “15 In A 30 Tour” with emerging star Maren Morris and ‘Holdin’ Her’ singer/songwriter Chris Janson. With a number of dates, including stops in Chicago, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Toronto and more, Hunt and company will travel all throughout North America on the big summer tour.
And along with the new tour, Sam Hunt also shared with fans that his next single, titled ‘Body Like A Back Road’, will premiere on country radio next month (February 1st). Tickets for the tour will go on sale days later, on February 3rd, with some dates going on sale later in the month.

Today iHeartMedia announced the return of its huge iHeartRadio music festival in Las Vegas. Taking place this year on September 23rd and 24th, also returning with the festival will be its Daytime Village and Macy’s “iHeartRadio Rising Star” talent search. And while the full lineup for the mega festival will release at some point in the future, iHeartRadio is giving us a sneak peak at the lineup with the announcement of its first two performers, two of the biggest emerging acts in music, Alessia Cara and country music’s Sam Hunt who will perform at the festival’s Daytime Village portion.
Last year’s lineup was epic, with featured performers like Kanye West, Coldplay, Sam Smith, Demi Lovato, Puff Daddy, The Weeknd, Lil Wayne, Fall Out Boy, Disclosure, Hozier, Jason Derulo, Diplo, Trey Songz, Nick Jonas, Jennifer Lopez, The Killers and many more, so if 2016’s lineup is even half as great, it will definitely be a night to remember.
Tickets for the Daytime Village go on sale today at 10 AM PT, which start at $39 (plus taxes and fees). As for tickets to the big event, ticket information and a full lineup will be announced later this summer, so stay tuned!
This past weekend, Taylor Swift brought her epic 1989 World Tour to Chicago’s Soldier Field. Selling over 100,000 seats in two nights, Taylor’s Chi-town fans saw performances from Shawn Mendes, Vance Joy, Haim, and of course Swift herself. Last night we checked out the tour for ourselves and it was more than memorable! From the light show and fireworks, to the costume changes, and even a surprise appearance from country music’s Sam Hunt, the concert left us speechless. And while two nights at Soldier Field wasn’t quite enough, as both performances sold out, we took some photos while we enjoyed the music, to help share the night to those who were at Pitchfork, another concert, or perhaps just sitting at home.
Check out our photos from Taylor Swift’s “1989 World Tour” stop at Chicago’s Soldier Field below (and check out our review here)!
Taylor Swift’s marquee and household name is the reason she sold-out back-to-back nights at Chicago’s Soldier Field, the biggest venue in Chicago. Talented opening acts, amazing costumes, beautiful light shows, pyrotechnics, and surprise guests aside, the 1989 World Tour is successful (from a numbers standpoint) because of who T-Swift is as a pop star. But all that extra stuff, the things that make her concerts memorable and well after the tickets are long gone, those are the things that make her live performance special, which ensure that those same fans that went through the gates tonight are the ones that will sit on their computer while they await for the next tour’s tickets to go on-sale. The only problem? As word-of-mouth spreads and fans who are ready to see Taylor for their second, third, or fourth time are joined by those who heard of Swift’s epic performances from a friend and want to see first hand, there won’t be enough room and Soldier Field may need to prepare to book a third night for the next time Swift comes to the Windy City. Having just experienced my first Taylor Swift concert, I am certain that it won’t be my last, as the ‘Bad Blood’ singer puts on a tour that matches her massive record sales, wide influence, and her elite status as a modern pop icon.
Last night Taylor Swift and her 1989 World Tour delivered for the Windy City, as T-Swift performed for Chicago well into the night, and with surprise guests Andy Grammer and Serayah. This just adds to the long catalog of surprise guests in the past couple weeks. So far, Taylor invited Nick Jonas, the U.S. Women’s Soccer team, The Weeknd, Jason Derulo and Lorde to join her on stage for the sold-out crowds and to perform some of their biggest hits. Tonight marked Taylor Swift’s second and final night at Chicago’s Soldier Field, and because of the great cast of surprise guests in the last week, fans could only wonder what Day 2 would hold?
