Faster Horses isn’t just a summer staple for fans, the festival has quickly become a favorite for artists to play.
“Last July, Brian O’Connell called me while they were at Faster Horses and asked if I would want to return for the fifth year,” said Dierks Bentley. “It’s one of my favorites memories playing there, I cannot wait to be back there and we’re gonna go out there and try and blow your minds for the fifth anniversary.”
Enhancing the stacked lineup each year, are the fringe offerings available across the weekend that breed the community feel that has enjoyed #5yearslotsofbeers. Ceremoniously opening the gates with the World Famous Budweiser Clydesdales, fans can kick off each day with “DeeJay Silver’s Pancake Party,” a brunch event to indulge with fellow campmates while sipping mimosas with a pregame-perfect soundtrack. Embracing the opportunity to express themselves, the fiercely competed “Campsite Contest” will also return, as well as the good-natured “Faster Humans Race” following its successful launch last year.
