A new country music festival, Faster Horses, is scheduled to take place this summer in Brooklyn, Michigan from July 19-21, 2013. Brian O’ Connell, the president of Live Nation Country, describes Faster Horses as a “a three-day hillbilly sleepover.” He also hopes to someday get the same recognition for country music festivals that that the other mega-festivals get.
â€œI aspire to be in their company one day with country music. If my little vision of festivals gets thought of in the same breath as those that would be great.â€
So far Faster Horses has confirmed Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Chris Young, Thompson Square, Thomas Rhett, Kix Brooks, Florida Georgia Line, Jerrod Niemann, David Nail, Colt Ford, Greg Bates, Ashley Monroe, Jon Pardi, Chase Rice, Jon Pardi, Drake White, DJ Silver, and Brett Eldredge.
