Growing up outside Chicago, visiting Ravinia Festival annually became a tradition for my family. Whether we listened to the Chicago symphony, world music or legendary artists of the time, the experience of Ravinia was like nothing else in the US. At it’s heart, the gorgeous lawn seating area, which incidentally welcomes you to bring as big of a spread of food & drink as you would like, becomes the greatest party of families and friends as the concert goes throughout the night. Though the lawn is unique in that the stage / performance are not visible, the huge trees & nature that envelop the sound remind you that sometimes you don’t need to look, you just need to listen.


The sunsets and advent of night become nothing short of magical. With the added quality of an excellent PA with delay towers throughout the venue, you will experience a concert with your friends & families like you never have before. Through the years, Ravinia has hosted the best of the best, including Frank Zappa, Steely Dan, Sting, Aretha Franklin, Hall & Oates and Robert Plant. We’re thrilled to add Umphrey’s McGee to this prestigious list. See you at Ravinia on July 25th for an evening of music with Umphrey’s McGee.
