FASTER HORSES FESTIVAL DRAWS OVER 20K FANS

FASTER HORSES FESTIVAL DRAWS OVER 20K FANS FOR THREE-DAY “HILLBILLY SLEEPOVER”
 

 
Nashville,
TN- July 24, 2013- The inaugural Faster Horses Festival drew over
20,000 fans to the rolling Irish hills of Brooklyn, MI this past weekend
for the music and camping festival. 
 
“The
Faster Horses crowd is dominated by high-spirited and fresh-faced
twentysomethings — college kids on summer break, suburbanites from
Detroit and Grand Rapids, and fans you might very well spot at next
month’s
Jay Z – Justin Timberlake show.  This is their scene, and
this music — including fest headliners Bentley, Luke Bryan (Saturday)
and Jason Aldean (Sunday) — is their party soundtrack.” Detroit Free Press  (Photo by Scott Legato)

on Saturday, July 20.  “Being a part of the first Faster Horses
festival was a blast. The energy level of that crowd was through the
roof. You would have never known it was the first year!” said Bryan.

Jason
Aldean closed out the festival with a hit-filled set on Sunday, July
21.  “Our expectations for the first year were blown away by a long
shot,” said Brian O’Connell, President of Live Nation, Nashville.  “The
fans came ready to party and settled in for a weekend of amazing
performances.  Our goal is to keep coming back year after year and make
this a summer staple, I think we’re off to a good start.”  (Photo by
