Windy City Smokeout 2023 Review

Festival Dates: July 13 - July 16

The 2023 edition of this Chicago fun fest starred Zach Bryan, Darius Rucker, Luke Bryan, and the Zac Brown Band. Over fifteen other country artists also performed at the festival, and as always, there was a lot of barbecue at the venue.

Last year, fans were absolutely thrilled by the festival’s lineup, and they came out in large numbers because of popular country artists like Zach Bryan. However, even though the stage performance was excellent, attendees complained about how the large and unruly crowd affected the mood of the festival.

Aside from the music, attendees also applauded the work of the quality BBQ vendors on the festival grounds. Even if you didn’t like the live music, you’d have stayed for the BBQ.

Windy City Smokeout Aftershows

The party doesn't end at the United Center: There are tons of after-show parties taking place across Chicago. Musicians, performers, and DJs tend to promote their new music at bars, music halls, and clubs across the city, so make sure to catch them in action at the following locations. You can find more information about the aftershows at Windy City Smokeout official site.

One of the privately organized afterparties is a country EDM at Epiphany Center for the Arts, just a short walk from the United Center. This party would be featuring Deerock, but it is just one on a long list of events that will be happening after the festival.

Windy City Smokeout Outfits

A lot of women go with a light-wieight, short dress and boots for the festival. If you are feeling it, you can also add a cowboy hat to match the entire country vibe the festival is supposed to have. For men, simple shorts, a t-shirt, and a baseball cap can make you blend in with everyone else at the venue. Put on comfortable sneakers because you will spend a lot of time standing and walking at the festival.
