Chicago’s Country LakeShake Cancelled For Foreseeable Future, Announces “Hiatus”

Chicago’s Country LakeShake Festival is no more…at least for now.

The fest, which was hosted on Northerly Island with the Chicago skyline as the backdrop to the stage, announced an indefinite “hiatus” on social media.

After 5 amazing years of country music on the lakefront, we wanted to be the first to let you know that Country LakeShake will be taking a hiatus. Any future plans will be announced accordingly.”

This begs the question – do we finally have too many country festivals?

Last year, LakeShake became the first major country festival to host a a full day/night of all women artists.
