The Taste of Country Music Festival begins on Friday, June 12, but campers who load in early can catch three of the New York fest’s acts playing the campground party on Thursday night. LoCash will headline the concert at the fest’s Bud Light stage.

Dylan Scott and Rachel Lipsky will also play, beginning at 6PM. It’s a concert available only to ToC Fest campers, so you need to have a camping pass to enter. Early load-in starts at 12PM on June 11, with the festival officially beginning the next day. All three artists will take the main stage for another performance throughout the weekend. Keith Urban, Tim McGraw and Toby Keith are the headliners, but the full lineup is loaded.

Camping at the Taste of Country Music Festival is a one-of-a-kind experience. The campgrounds are very close to the stage, making it easy to go back and forth as you need to. It also creates a wonderful communal feeling. You’ll quickly become friends with the tent or camper next to you — it’s impossible not to! Start the camaraderie early by lifting a cold one with LoCash at the kickoff party.

Jerrod Niemann, Sara Evans and the Eli Young Band will make appearances across the three-day weekend. In its third year, this festival is quickly becoming known as country music Woodstock — for all the right reasons. Tickets and camping passes are still available. And if you're already locked in for the fest, be sure to download the new app for iPhone or Android devices!
