After a successful six years of what is now considered a summer staple, the three-day experience “continues to reinvent itself each year, morphing into a multidimensional entertainment event” (Toledo Blade) and continues to make effort in “tweaking aspects to the fan experience year-over-year” (MLive), enticing new fans and keeping current ones returning to the July festival. Each year, the festival makes its descent to Michigan International Speedway for the self-declared “three-day hillbilly sleepover,” where audiences flock to witness star-studded performances and enjoy interactive activities such as the “Campsite Contest”, “Faster Humans Fun Run” and first-class vendors. More information on what fans can expect will be available leading up to the festival.
