BROOKLYN, Mich. — Faster Horses Festival has quickly become Michigan’s “go-to summer bash” (Detroit Free Press) and will return in its fourth year on July 15-17 with a star-studded lineup including headliners Jason Aldean, Eric Church and Lady Antebellum. A three-day, two stage country music and camping festival set among the rolling Irish Hills of Brooklyn, MI and dubbed “The Party of The Summer,” Faster Horses has become known for the strong community vibe within the campsites as well as rapidly winning over artists as one of their favorite shows of the season. Passes will go on-sale on Feb. 12 at 10am ET at fasterhorsesfestival.com.
With Detroit News heralding the festival’s atmosphere as “how country feels,” returning fans and new attendees alike, will be able to enjoy the stacked lineup they’ve come to expect including Gary Allan, A Thousand Horses, Big & Rich, Granger Smith feat Earl Dibbles, Jr., Sam Hunt, LoCash, David Nail, Joe Nichols, Jon Pardi and Travis Tritt with more to be announced in the coming weeks.
What I love about Faster Horses is that the passion and loyalty of the fans is palpable,” said Brian O’Connell President of Live Nation Country Touring. “You can feel it when you’re out in the campgrounds and you see how much time and energy they’ve put into preparing for the festival, and you can feel it when an artist steps out onto the stage. That passion drives us to come back every year with a lineup that will show our appreciation for all that they’ve done to help us build this festival. I can’t wait to get back out there for another huge year!”
Selling out in advance of only its third year, Faster Horses is part of Live Nation’s family of premier country music festivals which includes four further destination festivals including Windy City LakeShake-Chicago, IL, FarmBorough-New York, NY, Watershed-The Gorge, WA and Route 91 Harvest-Las Vegas, NV.
