Midland are among the artists confirmed for the second annual Wild Horses Festival. The event will take place on September 24 and 25 in Gallagher Square at Petco Park, San Diego, California.
The Big Machine stars, formed in Dripping Springs, Texas in 2014, will to the bill for one evening of the event with another Texan, Fort Worth-born Cody Jinks, headlining the other. The line-up also features LeAnn Rimes, Paul Cauthen, Kassi Ashton, Red Shahan, Jaime Wyatt, Erin Viancourt, Scott Ballew, and Nancarrow.
The festival, not to be confused with a gathering of the same name in Australia, is staged by Outriders Present, who also hold the Under The Big Sky Festival in Montana. The latter event takes place this weekend, July 15-17, also starring both Midland and Jinks, and with other such names as Margo Price, Lord Huron, Turnpike Troubadours, Black Pumas, Jamey Johnson, Lainey Wilson, Sierra Ferrell, and Sierra Hull.
The VIP Area at Wild Horses will feature a private entrance, private bathrooms, an exclusive bar, and heated outdoor lounge. Tickets are now on sale. The festival, like Born & Raised, joined the country calendar last year, when Wild Horses was a two-day event in November and starred such artists as Ryan Bingham, Paul Cauthen, Jackson + Sellers, Whitey Morgan, and Jamestown Revival.
Midland’s The Last Resort Tour continues in Idaho Falls, ID tomorrow (14), wrapped around various other festival appearances. The band are due to play the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on October 15 and Red Rocks Amphitheatre on October 22, before starting an eight-date tour of Australia on December 8.
The band’s third studio album The Last Resort: Greetings From was released by Big Machine in May. Its preview single “Sunrise Tells The Story” appeared last year, followed by their collaboration with Jon Pardi, “Longneck Way To Go,” which is officially released on July 18.
