2016 Ravinia Festival Summer Guide

Ravinia Festival Tickets

The Ravinia Music Festival is one of the best gems in American music culture. Running all the way from June to September in Highland Park, Illinois, right outside of Chicago, this festival showcases more than 140 acts and events. The question isn’t who is playing, it’s who isn’t playing. Use our Ravinia Festival Summer Guide to be in the know about who’s coming and when because with a festival of this scope, you’re going to need some help remembering all the great events. Just in June you can catch musical legends including the great voice of Franki Valli of the Four Seasons, the songwriting legend Paul Simon, and classic blues singer and songwriter Bob Dylan. Not into the oldies?  Catch country star Gavin Degraw or folk twosome the Indigo Girls just in the first month too. Not into music at all? Still not a problem.  Giggle the night away with none other than the brains behind Family Guy and the hit movie Ted, Seth Macfarlane, on June 22nd.

Prices fluctuate depending on the act, but for many events you can get general admission lawn seating for as low as $24! Proper seating starts around $80 for most shows. The lawn seating area is a great place to picnic while listening to some of the world’s most talented performers. Children up to 15, high school, and college students also get free lawn seating for classical performances like the great Chicago Symphony Orchestra! The Ravinia Music Festival is in Highland Park Illinois, which is just a 41 minute ride up highway 94 from downtown Chicago, and just an hour south of Milwaukee. The venue sits on a 36 acre piece of land with the Pavilion holding about 3,400 music and entertainment fans! This historic venue has been in use since 1904. Ravinia is also a non-profit organization that serves over 75,000 people and students a year through their Reach*Teach*Play program that is designed to ensure music programs are available to any and all who seek them.
