Music fans enjoy a 7th Heaven performance at 3D Sideouts Sports Tavern, 4018 W. Roberts Road, Island Lake.

3D Sideouts Sports Tavern has expanded its outdoor concert patio, just in time to welcome five nationally touring artists to Island Lake in the northwest suburbs this summer.

The Freddy Jones Band will be the first national act to perform on the patio on Saturday, June 22. Other nationally touring acts on the schedule include Local H on July 13, Imposters in Effect: Beastie Boys Tribute on July 27, Mungion on Aug. 10 and The Prince Experience on Aug. 17.

Patrons enjoy the summer vibe near the patio stage at 3D Sideouts Sports Tavern on Roberts Road in Island Lake.

Additionally, great local and regional talent will be featured Thursday through Sunday weekly through September. Performers include Hairbangers Ball on June 21, and The 1985, Too Hype Crew, Fool House and more will appear throughout the summer.

Owner Jerry DeLaurentis said in a news release the new space can accommodate up to 1,000 people with a new crate bar and sky deck on top of it. The outdoor area’s great summer vibe includes potted palms, a fire table, a gazebo bar and multiple seating levels. A 6-by-10 foot video wall will soon be installed, as will an improved sound system and better lighting.

The gazebo bar and sky deck can be reserved for private parties of up to 20 people. Other VIP seating is also available by reservation.

”Between the band schedule and the new setup, we’re going to be bigger and better than ever,” DeLaurentis said in the release. “It’s going to be a fantastic summer for music fans at Sideouts. Our new outdoor venue is second to none.”

The music lineup and events calendar can be found at, where visitors also will find the ticketweb link for purchases. Prices vary depending on the performance, but are in $25 range for general admission for a nationally touring act, or $15 for a regional band. Food and drink are available for purchase at the shows.
