Windy City Smokeout Festival drops 2023 lineup

Chicago is gearing up to rock with its Windy City Smokeout Festival coming to the United Center from July 13-16th, 2023. The four days of festival-style outdoor cooking and music will feature headlining acts from some of the biggest names in country music including Zach Bryan, Darius Rucker, Luke Bryan, and Zac Brown Band.

At this year’s Windy City Smokeout, patrons can look forward to experiencing some of the best BBQ in the city straight from the grills of local pitmasters. Meat lovers won’t be disappointed by the flavor explosions available on-site, with selections including ribs, brisket, pulled pork, and more. Plus, there will be plenty of cold drinks, local beers, and wines to cool everyone off in the summer heat. 

Patrons will get to experience the best of outdoor country music whether they’re rocking to the tunes of headliners or dancing to the sounds of an array of up-and-coming talent.

The four headliners come from vastly different backgrounds and each will bring something a little special to the table. Zac Brown Band brings their signature fusion of country, folk, and jam rock for a one of a kind experience you can’t find anywhere else. Darius Rucker has a slicked back sound that will bring a southern chime to the festival. Zach Bryan will be throwing a juke joint-style blues party that nobody can ignore and Luke Bryan is sure to turn it up a notch so everybody can enjoy the party.

Whether you’re coming to the festival for the amazing musical talent, or you’re joining for the best in-city BBQ, you’ll be in the hottest spot Chicago has to offer to fill your soul.
