Record Attendance at Third-Annual Taste of Country Music Festival
It was a record-setting party in Hunter Mountain, New York this past weekend, when 50,000 fans attended the third-annual Taste of Country Music Festival, which featured some of country music's biggest names.
“We continue to be grateful for the support we’ve gotten from the fans of the Taste of Country Music Festival," says Dhruv Prasad, VP of Live Events at Townsquare Media, "as well as the artist community that helped us launch the first country music festival in the northeast three years ago, and continues to contribute to the growth of the event.”
Headliners Keith Urban, Tim McGraw and Toby Keith kept the country music party going all weekend long in 2015, but they couldn't do it all alone. Billy Currington, Eli Young Band, Jerrod Niemann, Sara Evans, Easton Corbin and Chase Bryant were all part of the event that broke attendance records.
Tracy Lawrence was there as well, giving fans a real treat when an impromptu collaboration took place with McGraw on “Find Out Who Your Friends Are.” Other surprises of the festival included a few lucky fans who went zip-lining with Logan Mize and several attendees who saw Bryant riding the resort’s Skyride.
Also announced over the course of the weekend was superstar Kenny Chesney will be headlining next year's festival, which will be held June 10-12, 2016. For more information about the Taste of Country Music Festival — and to purchase tickets for the 2016 festival — go here.
