Tim McGraw and Sam Hunt will headline the latest addition to the country music festival calendar, the GoldenSky Music Festival at Discovery Park in Sacramento, CA. The inaugural event will take place over the weekend of October 15-16.
Other country A-listers on the bill include Brothers Osborne, Midland, Carly Pearce, Parmalee, Michael Ray, Diamond Rio, Brian Kelley, Lindsay Ell, and BRELAND. There will also be a daily beer festival, free to ticket holders who buy passes before May 6, with over 100 local, regional and national craft beers, seltzers, and ciders. From that date onwards, admission to the beer festival can be added to an overall ticket for an extra $10. Day tickets begin at $59.99 plus fees, and full weekend general admission tickets at $89.99 plus fees, with VIP options also available.
GoldenSky Music Festival is produced by Danny Wimmer Presents, whose previous production credits include Welcome to Rockville and Louder Than Life, in partnership with Visit Sacramento. Says Danny Wimmer Presents’ chief marketing officer Chamie McCurry: “Besides the amazing lineup, GoldenSky has been curated to create a one-of-a-kind country music festival experience rooted in the capital city.
“Our GoldenSky Beer Festival allows fans to tailgate inside the festival with unlimited sampling over 100 craft beers, The Farmhouse will showcase some of the best farm-to-fork offerings in Sacramento, the El Dorado Market will be the place to shop for souvenirs, and we can’t wait to see everyone line dancing in the River City Saloon & Dance Hall. It’s been three years in the making and we couldn’t be more excited to finally be here today, announcing it to the world.”
Other names on the bill include Brittney Spencer, Matt Stell, Elvie Shane, Ernest, Lily Rose, and Chase Matthew. Visitors can also experience the River City Saloon & Dance Hall, the El Dorado Market with local wares, the Fieldhouse Sports Bar, and the Loud Lounge.
