2017 Taste of Country Music Festival Breaks Attendance Record
The 2017 Taste of Country Music Festival featured some of country's most impressive stars, and the crowd definitely approved: A staggering 56,000 fans attending the annual summer event.
The Taste of Country Music Festival, which took place June 9-11, 2017, at Hunter Mountain Resort (Hunter, N.Y.), is in its fifth year, and it just keeps getting better. This year's lineup included headliners Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert, Chris Young, Kip Moore, Tyler Farr, Maren Morris and more.
Aldean had a rocking set, treating fans to more than 20 songs, and Lambert captivated the crowd as always with songs like "Pink Sunglasses" and "Kerosene." Hunt had to cancel his headlining spot due to illness, but Moore took on the big task of closing out the festival like a pro. The festival also announced Eric Church as the 2018 headliner, delighting the 56,000 who heard the news firsthand.
“We’re incredibly proud of the festival we’ve grown over these past five years,” says Dhruv Prasad, one of the festival’s organizers. “We couldn’t have done it without a lot of partners: the amazing artists, our hosts at Hunter Mountain, all of our great staff, our sponsors, the State of New York, and the folks in Greene County, and -- of course -- our fans. This annual festival offers a chance for them to gather together and share their passion for country music. We’re proud to deliver the artists and experience that make that possible each year.”
The sixth annual Taste of Country Music Festival will be held June 8-10, 2018. Advance tickets for next year’s event are on sale now through Thursday (June 15) at 11:59PM ET at the festival’s website.
