Downtown Hoedown History
The Downtown Hoedown was established in 1983 and is widely recognized as the largest Country Music Festival of it’s kind in the world. Hosted by 99.5 WYCD, Detroit’s Best Country, the Hoedown is regarded by the Country Music Industry as a premier showcase opportunity for new and established artists. Located in downtown Detroit, the event attracts hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic country music fans from the Midwest and beyond.
The 2013 WYCD Downtown Hoedown marks the festival’s 31st Anniversary! Bringing hundreds of thousands of people in downtown Detroit, participating in 3 days of country life-style music and entertainment, this year is the biggest ever and is expected to surpass all the rest with over 50 artists taking to the stage, including local Detroit artists and many of country music’s biggest national stars! Not surprisingly, many artists have gotten their big break at the Downtown Hoedown, namely Rascal Flatts, Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Montgomery Gentry, Big & Rich, just to name a few. Check out our “Hall of Fame” to see the complete list of Hoedown performers! Be sure to come on down May 31 through June 2nd, 2013 to see the next generation of country stars shine at the Hoedown!
