Get Yours Now or Be Left Standing at the Gate!
FLORENCE, Ariz. (April 10, 2014) – The desert was hot, but Country Thunder was hotter today in Florence, Ariz., with a record-setting audience of over 24,000 cowboy boot-wearin’ and country music-lovin’ fans. Thompson Square, Will Hoge, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Ryan Bexley and Chad Brownlee kicked off the party of the year on the main stage and blew fans away with hit after hit. And it’s not just the award-winning, top-notch music from country’s biggest and brightest stars that keeps people coming back year after year. Ticket holders also enjoyed the Jack Daniel’s Experience, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that brought a taste of the much-loved distillery from Lynchburg, Tenn., to Florence, Ariz, the Denim and Diamonds on-site bar, over 18 food vendors and nearly three dozen retail vendors. After the lights of the main stage went dark, festival goers made their way to Electric Thunder, whose lights could be seen miles away. The 40,000 sqft vintage circus tent is packed with more lighting production than the main stage; including a 25' tall DJ booth with a complete video wall, 5,000 bulb lights where DJ Du was spinning into the wee hours of the morning. And this is just the first day of what is sure to be the most exciting and memorable Country Thunder to date!
