The Faster Horses Festival is back for its second year on July 18, 19, and 20th in Brooklyn, MI. Faster Horses saw over 20,000 fans last year and expects more with this years lineup.

The festival’s second stage: “Next From Nashville” will feature Drake White & the Big Fire, Sam Hunt, Natalie Stovall And The Drive, Gunnar & The Grizzly Boys, Dallas Smith, Dylan Scott, A Thousand Horses, David Fanning, Glen Templeton, Corey Cox, Old Dominion, Clare Dunn, Paulina Jayne, Matt Austin and Annabelle Road.

Faster Horses also revealed its plan for its “Late Night From Nashville” set, featuring DeeJay Silver’s Country Club, a late night DJ set after hours from renowned Country Music re-mixer DeeJay Silver. Other on-site activities for festival-goers at the party of the summer will include the world’s largest inflatable waterslide, foam parties, giant ferris wheel, photo booths and a 100 ft. vertigo swing.

“We were completely blown away by the response last year and it’s pushing us to keep making it bigger and better,” said Brian O’Connell, Creator of Faster Horses Festival and Live Nation President of Country Touring.  “With this festival and Watershed out in Washington, we are focused on giving the fans a unique experience unlike anything out there.  Beyond the stellar list of artists, we also have late night jams, water slides, huge swings, nine different camping grounds and even horse vaulting.  If the fans keep showing up, we’ll keep trying to surprise them with whatever crazy ideas we come up with next.”
