Hitting a concert at Ravinia in
Highland Park, IL is a summer tradition for many Chicagoland music lovers. Umphrey's McGee will
join the long list of acts who've played Ravinia since it first opened in 1904 on July 25,
when the sextet makes their debut at the venue.
For those unfamiliar, Ravinia - the nation's oldest outdoor music festival site - features
a beautiful pavilion and sprawling lawn. Those who purchase lawn tickets are encouraged to
bring their own lawn chairs, tables, blankets and coolers with your own food and beverage.
In other words, this won't be your typical Umphrey's McGee experience.
Umphrey's keyboardist Joel Cummins has shared his thoughts on the band making their
debut on the Umphrey's Blog. Tickets go on sale to Ravinia donors on March 5. An Umphrey's Ticketing pre-sale
begins on April 18 at 10 a.m. CT followed by the general on-sale through Ravinia.org on April 24.
