When it comes to the Windy City Smokeout, “we like it, we love it, we want some more of it!” And luckily after the half-way point, there are still two days left of the premiere country music festival in Chicago.

Following Willie Nelson’s headlining set on opening night, Friday night picked up where Thursday left off with amazing sets from Russell Dickerson and Tim McGraw.

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.
