The 2018 Summer Concert Series Has Concluded

See you on the Village Green in 2019!

Thank you to everybody who came out to listen to all the wonderful music that came to Hoffman Estates this year! We enjoyed seeing so many singing along, dancing and enjoying the free music that the city brings to you every summer!

What is Summer Sounds on the Green?

SPOILER ALERT: If you enjoy free live music, you'll LOVE Summer Sounds!

Summer Sounds on the Green brings great music to the Village Green across the street from the Sears Centre on select Thursdays during the summer months. The music varies from rock, pop, soul, big band, country and more! The venue provides a Ravinia-like experience with a large lawn area that offers plenty of space for concert-goers to set up foldable chairs and picnic areas. Don't feel like packing your own eats and drinks? See below for some of the great concessions the Village Green offers!

  • All concerts begin at 7pm on the Village Green.
  • Bring a picnic! Coolers, food, drinks, chairs, blankets, small tables and almost anything else are allowed for you to enjoy the concert. Seating is first come, first serve so come out early and find a spot to enjoy the evening.
  • Handicap parking is available off of Prairie Stone Parkway with a golf cart for assistance.
