What You'll Get
Summer festivals began as a way for ancient peoples to celebrate a bountiful harvest and another injury-free year of breaking rocks with larger rocks at the rock-breaking factory. Rock out with today’s GrouponLive deal to the Taste of Four Lakes Festival Presented by U.S Cellular - AMS at Four Lakes in Lisle. Festival events take place on Friday, August 19, from 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., and Saturday, August 20, from 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Choose between the following options:
• For $10, you get two general-admission tickets for one festival date (a $20 value).
• For $15, you get two general-admission tickets for both festival dates (a $40 value).
As midsummer temperatures heat up the grassy fields and sports courts at the Four Lakes recreational center, an annual jubilee awakens from hibernation for two days of live music and carnival carousing. Recreation directors call temporary draws in golf and volleyball matches so contestants can head over for Friday’s fundraising concert. Benefitting local charities for military veterans, the concert features such cinephilic bands as Almost Famous and Sixteen Candles blasting a slew of cover songs and more pop rock than an explosion in a candy store. An after party at the Lodge at Four Lakes bar features flowing taps and fire-breathing rockers Supernaut tearing up the stage with faithful covers.
Local restaurants and vendors come out in delicious droves for Saturday’s festival schedule, which welcomes families with an array of kid-friendly activities. Food tents stand side-by-side with inflatable obstacle courses and face-painting booths, and kids strap on astronaut suits to verify the antigravity authenticity of the giant moon bounce. Featured bands Hit or Miss and Wedding Banned wow audiences with solos that shred harder than a bear inside a piñata factory.
This Groupon does not include food and drinks, which may be purchased with $1 tickets available at the festival.

About Four Lakes Snowsports
Seven rope tows hoist skiers and snowboarders to the top of the trails at Four Lakes Snowsports, helping them take a panoramic glance before the pristine powder and carving their way back to the bottom. Five zones make up the skiable expanse, increasing in difficulty from a pair of bunny hills to a terrain park, where a gauntlet of boxes and rails slake appetites for jumps, grinds, and extreme cold-weather picnicking. As a proud member of the Professional Ski Instructors of America, Four Lakes’ ski school helps aspiring skiers and snowboarders stay safe and in control while zipping and darting about the slopes.
