Friday’s headliner Dierks Bentley wowed the eager crowd with his hit-filled set and brought out some surprise guests during the encore of his No. one song “Drunk On A Plane.” "Sometimes you're watching Dierks Bentley perform at LakeShake 2015 and sometimes the Stanley Cup champions storm the stage with the Cup during it. That happened tonight,” raved a stunned RedEye Chicago
attending the country music superstar’s headlining set.
Heavy thunderstorms postponed festival activities on Saturday night, but Brad Paisley graciously stayed an extra day to keep the party going on Sunday adding to the already colossal final night lineup which included headliners Florida Georgia Line.
“As a native Chicagoan myself, Windy City LakeShake means the world to me,” said Brian O’ Connell Live Nation President of Country Touring. "The atmosphere in the crowd and backstage across the weekend was electric and while no first year of a festival is without its hiccups I am so thankful for the fans, the artists, my team, THE CITY OF Chicago and a special shout out to Brad Paisley for staying and playing on Sunday night, making this weekend one for the books and ending the festival with a serious bang!”
